Vol 9 (2002)

This volume comprises six papers accepted through the regular submission process.

In the first article, Victor Mbarika re-thinks the ICT policy focus for Africa's least developed countries, with particular reference to the need for a sound teledensity structure.

In the second article, Elaine Rabbitt and Jeremy Pagram consider ICT developments in outback Australian communities, with a study of two isolated schools in Australia's far North West.

In the third article, Jide Olutimayin considers the interaction of IT and local culture in the South Pacific, taking the Republic of Fiji as a case study.

Fiji is also the context for the fourth article, but here Charles Davis, Jim McMaster and Jan Nowak consider the opportunities that low-income nations such as Fiji offer for the burgeoning international trade in IT-enabled business services.

In the fifth article, Irwin Brown discusses the individual and technological factors that affect the perceived ease-of-use of web-based learning technologies in South Africa.

Finally, Luiz Joia and Fuad Zamot describe the development of Internet-based Reverse Auctions in Brazil, with substantial reference to the procurement process used by the Federal Government.
