How IT can contribute to Human Affairs
AbstractThe document is structured in a way that 3 Sections discuss on a rather general level the interplay of IT with people, change, and the state. After an interlude about IT as a global commodity a more specified Section addresses the interaction of IT with business (the engine powering human affairs). Future work will cover the interaction of IT with society, and learning (the driver of everything). A summary and an outlook conclude the essay not without soliciting further work.Concluding this introduction a disclaimer is in order. This is a positive, overoptimistic view.(Quoting David Ben Gurion: One must try the impossible to reach the possible.)
