The problem of the information format (for networks)

By Dr. Richard Rogers (November 2003, Govcom.org Foundation )

This report seeks to understand how networks deal with information formats – are certain formats routinely filed away or deleted, whist others tend to circulate? The report provides an introduction to the some of the arguments about how to approach the problem of information formats (for networks). Subsequently, it describes each of the projects undertaken at the workshop, including the data collected, the methods employed and the results eventually found. It also contains the info-graphics created during the workshop that aid in telling the stories in our final presentation, “The Problem of Information Formats (for networks).”

Rightsizing Telecoms

Occupied Palestine

The current financial crisis has been branded as that of the banking, insurance and automobile industries. However, other sectors—namely telecommunications—which are seemingly humming along should not be ignored by those interested in maximizing today’s economic lessons. Turning a blind eye toward a profitable industry should no longer be an option. Industry regulators and legislators must be prepared to take proactive action before an industry falters.

Taking inventory is a good starting point. The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) recently issued its 2009 Information Economy Report. The report focuses on the development implications of information and communication technologies (ICTs) worldwide. The position of the US should be ringing some alarms.
