World Information Access 2006 Report

Directed by Phil Howard, the World Information Access Project have released the World Information Access 2006 Report.

It’s a pity the information on their site and booklet is still so scarce, as the report looks really worthy. Some key findings:

Finding 1: Key computing and communication technologies are more concentrated in a few countries, not less concentrated.

Finding 2: Civil society around the world has embraced the Internet.

Finding 3: The design and manufacture of information technology still occurs in a small core group of countries.

Finding 4: People in developing countries – especially countries in Latin America – are putting more cultural content online than they are pouring into books.

Finding 5: Internet access in the world’s mega cities is still a luxury for most residents.
