Though it is designed as an open debate among students and the speaker, I’m giving unilaterally a name to the second seminar I’m imparting in Trento — From e-Readiness to e-Awareness (or the way back) — just to give an idea about what I guess it is going to deal with. I was asked by the organization to please suggest some basic bibliography for the students to read and prepare some questions so the debate could be started.
I here present v2.0 of my initial list, somehow improved (or impovered, yours to judge) with 3 more references. There it goes:

I’d like to add to these my following posts:
- Digital divide: what can cooperation for development do
- Negroponte and the Web 2.0 or the Four Classes of the Digital Divide
- Networked Readiness Index vs. Human Development Index
From all of these, Tongia et al. is quite long and specific (but interesting enough to be in this list). The other ones I think they are accessible to any kind of learner.
If you need to cite this article in a formal way (i.e. for bibliographical purposes) I dare suggest:
