What Works?
September-October 2003 (vol. 1 no. 5)
pp. 76-77

Perhaps Metcalfe is right: at least most of the time, at least in the US, technology does trump politics. This is because the nature of our socio-economic system has less of a government driven, top-down approach than do most other societies. The UK?s pragmatic blend of social commitment and practical implementation is mid-way between the US and EU models. It will be interesting to see which of these three approaches to fostering an Internet-based society can best balance progress in implementing an IT culture with realizing citizens? security and privacy needs.
