Abstract

The articles collected here were chosen from papers presented at the second biannual conference on Cultural Attitudes towards Technology and Communication, held in Perth, Australia, 13–16 July 2000. Collectively, the articles explore the social, political and cultural contexts that inhibit and/or encourage the appropriation of IT among cultural groups very much at the edges of Western cultural influence and communication infrastructures.
