An ever-increasing proportion of the world's communications and activity occurs online, but that doesn't mean everyone has bought into the concept. In fact, a full 15 percent of American adults remain offline, according to a new report released Wednesday by the Pew Internet & American Life Project. While a small number of the 15 percent of Americans who remain offline actually want to be online, 92 percent of offline adults are not interested in using the Internet and email and won't become interested in the future, Pew estimates.
