From the SAFIPA Conference
Lucy Abrahams from the Wits University (LINK Centre) makes the following interesting point (about 5 minutes ago): We are all "Emerging Information Societies". She says this because there is no perfect Information Society in any country at the moment and her statement is supported by statistics and figures.
Inspecting her statement much more simply, globalisation implies that we are one society made up of many parts, and as long as there is a digital divide, there will only be an emerging information society - because on an information level, there is just one society.
[... looking forward to more interesting insights at this conference...]
