APC Annual Report 2000
, April 2001
In many ways, the year 2000 was a turning point for APC. The communications revolution of the previous ten years had been both a great challenge and an opportunity. By the mid-1990s, our members were forced to make the transition from being pioneers in the use of online communication to facing intense competition. APC itself needed to broaden its focus from primarily facilitating technical interconnection, to embracing the emerging ICT for justice and development movement in a holistic way.
