The discussion on the "Internet" and rural development has been most
helpful to me personally. I personally am very sympathetic to the
view that we just don't know how the introduction of new forms of
electronic communications will affect rural areas.
What role does experimentation play in this? Can we test our ideas
in a few places, and learn from the experience? I'd particularly
like to see experiments with rural applications, and with
applications focused on the urban poor.
