Authors:  Becky P.Y. Loo (The University of Hong Kong, Pokfulam, Hong Kong)
Since an e-society is a multi-dimensional phenomenon beyond technological “achievements”, e-development (that is, the progress toward a mature e-society) cannot be measured by the telecommunication infra-structure, Internet traffic or selected socio-economic indicators alone. Nonetheless, it is the advanced telecommunication network which makes the connections of computers possible in the first place. Hence, indicators on the development and maturity of the telecommunication system, particularly its infrastructure, have been widely used as indicators of the level of e-development of a society during the early 1980s. Thereafter, there has been an increasing recognition that the availability of the e-infrastructure does not guarantee usage and that the latter represents a more realistic representation of the level e-development.
