Global Information Technology Report

The Global Information Technology Report (via Harold Jarche):
Since it was first launched in 2001, The Global Information Technology Report has become a valuable and unique benchmarking tool to determine national ICT strengths and weaknesses, and to evaluate progress. It also highlights the continuing importance of ICT application and development for economic growth.

The Report uses the Networked Readiness Index (NRI) to measure the degree of preparation of a nation or community to participate in and benefit from ICT developments. The NRI is composed of three component indexes which assess:
- environment for ICT offered by a country or community
- readiness of the community's key stakeholders (individuals, business and governments)
- usage of ICT among these stakeholders.

Denmark tops the list, with the UK 9th, and Japan 14th. Now I need to read the report to find out what this ranking means.

There are a few videos on the website that I referred to, which might be easier to listen to than reading the entire report. I take all of these reports with a grain of salt ;-)
