Answering my previous post (also sent to the DDN list), Jon Camfield points me to these references:

Milner, H. V. (2006). The Digital Divide: The Role of Political Institutions in Technology Diffusion. In Comparative Political Studies, Volume 39, (No 2, March 200), pp 176-199. Thousand Oaks: SAGE.

As can be easily seen, last two references are almost the same, being the former the working paper and the latter the publication as an article. The three of them are a good approach to interconnecting ICT data and (trying and) showing some cross conclusions. Check Helen V. Milner‘s web site for other papers and even data and how-to about the reference.

BTW, following Jon’s blog I find Henry Farrell’s – actually, it looks like the "Information Technology and International Affairs" subject web site. The reading list is quite complete and class eleven has some other links to references about the Digital Divide :)

(Thanks to Deborah Elizabeth Finn that forwarded my previous post to him)

If you need to cite this article in a formal way (i.e. for bibliographical purposes) I dare suggest:

  1. For the record, Dr. Farrell turned me on to Eszter Hargittai (http://eszter.com/), whose work led me to Milner’s.

    My more permanent blog (I don’t know how long Henry will keep our class blogs up there) is at http://JonCamfield.com, where I’ve relocated most of the material from that blog, as well as keep a small wiki that I use to track ICT4Dev topics that I’m interested in (or may become interested in!). I need to add this site to my wiki offiste reference list!
