Interesting quotes from WSIS.

Quotes of the day:

“While we can talk about the best way to supply women of the world with dishwashers, some are simply looking for water to wash their dishes.” (In reference to the technology required to access ICTs)

“Parliaments must consider people like my grandmother who will not ever use e-banking because she doesn't trust putting her money in a bank!” (speaking on other issues that parliamentarians must address to prepare their economies for the ICT revolution).
