Resumen:

"Using a combination of domain names and user counts, this paper provides an assessment of the global distribution of Internet content creation at the national and urban level and the structure of the supply and demand for this content at the national level. Theories of export based development are used to assess the strengths and weaknesses of countries Internet presence and the ramifications of this for future development."

Resumen:

"Using a dataset of Internet domain name developed by the author in the summer of 1998, this article illustrates that three regions - San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles, are the leading centers for Internet content in the United States both in terms of absolute size and degree of specialization. It also analyzes how the commercialization of the Internet has changed from 1993 to 1998 and explores the relationship between existing industrial sectors and the specialization in commercial domain names. Over time there appears to be a stronger connection between Internet content and information intensive industries than between Internet content and the industries providing the computer and telecommunications technology necessary for the Internet to operate."

Resumen:

"Policy makers and infrastructure planners need an understanding of the global diffusion of the Internet. This paper summarizes work that has been done, presents the results of a recent questionnaire study, and discusses options for the future. A number of people have been tracking the global diffusion of the Internet. Some focus on single indicators such as the existence of IT connectivity in a nation (Landweber and Crepin-Leblond) or the number of hosts in a nation (Lottor and Quarterman). We (Press and Rodriguez) reported on a survey of several Internet-related indicators at INET 96. Others study one aspect of the Internet in depth (Demchack, government Web sites, CAIDA, global backbone networks), focus on one aspect of the Internet in a nation (Boardwatch Magazine, United States ISPs and backbone networks, Mike Jensen, African ISPs) or do comprehensive, in-depth studies of the state of the Internet in a nation (PAN Asia, Mosaic Group). In a recent study we used a questionnaire based on the Mosaic Group multidimensional framework for assessing the state of the Internet in a nation. We invited attendees of the 1998 ISOC Developing Nations Workshop to participate, and the results of that survey are presented. The paper also discusses the feasibility of continuing such surveys on a regular basis, asking what information is practical to gather on a global basis, and speculating on the establishment of an online database maintained by a decentralized group of respondents from each nation."

Resumen:

"India and China are unfriendly nations, share a common border, and have different forms of government. They have 38 percent of the world's population, their expanding middle classes are an important global market, and they are major producers and polluters. The development of their Internets will have global implications. This paper is based on an in-depth Mosaic Group study of the state of the Internet in China and India and the factors that explain it. It begins with a brief summary of the study methodology and framework for analysis, then compares the Chinese and Indian Internets on six dimensions: pervasiveness, geographic dispersion, sectoral absorption, connectivity infrastructure, organizational infrastructure, and sophistication of use. China is found to equal or exceed India on each dimension. Explanations for this situation are offered by comparing determining factors in telecommunication infrastructure, human resources, equipment and the economy, and government interest and support. We then look to the future. In spite of frequent claims that the Internet will erode national sovereignty, government interest and support is seen to be important both directly and indirectly through its influence on the other factors. We examine changing government roles, primarily the adoption of an ambitious Action Plan in India and the reorganization of Ministries and Internet service providers in China. The Indian Action Plan addresses each of our six diffusion dimensions and is designed to elevate India to the level of information technology superpower. The impact of the Chinese changes is less direct, but will also be important in determining the future of the Internet there."
