Last week there was a workshop at re-publica, Berlin named
Netz-Kultur in Ländern des Südens
with Andrea Goetzke (newthinking) , Frederic Dubois (APC), Christian Kreutz (GTZ) and xy Matzka (??). Most of the presenter mentioned the ICT4D Programme. So I looked for there Website and the digital Version of the book online
'ICT4D - CONNECTING PEOPLE FOR A BETTER WORLD'
Lessons, Innovations and Perspectives of Information and Communication Technologies in Development.
(If I see the material and presentations from this session Online, I will publish such links on this post.)
Andrea Goetzke presented stats from 2005, so I checked the actual "The Internet World Stats on Usage" (updated - March 2007).
