Stop the world, I wanna get off!

The following text was inspired by discussions during the September meeting of the IDEAS group in Geneva. Chaired by Bruno Lanvin, the subject of this “dinner-discussion” was the role of the Internet in developing countries. The following text however has little to do with the question of development. Another text “Anyone got a can-opener?” Opening up the Internet. deals with ideas about learning, Internet and developing countries coming from that meeting.
