a new digital divide

Seth Godin writes:

I think a new divide has opened up, one that is based far more on choice than on circumstance. Several million people (and the number is growing, daily) have chosen to become the haves of the Internet, and at the same time that their number is growing, so are their skills.

Is it a divide if it's based on choice? Sounds more like the classic early/late adopter distinction to me. I basically fit onto the left-hand column for every row in Seth's table, which is an odd feeling. Bored with Flickr is a little harsh, but I must say that I'm more exited by the opportunities for social behavior that Upcoming affords than the passive social behavior that Flickr does. Flickr : past :: Upcoming : future.
