Overview

Little, head of the Centre for Innovation, Knowledge and Enterprise (Open U. Business School, Milton Keynes, UK), considers the social nature of design and the implications of new information technology on design and development in the context of the digital divide. He is particularly concerned with ensuring that both the form and the content of technology are appropriate for productive material and cultural use in low-income areas; his intent is to move beyond the binarism that separates the design of technology from the conditions of its use. Little looks, moreover, at the role of information and communication technologies in globalization and the global and local implications of development inequities arising from it. The volume lacks a subject index. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
