Currently listening to the EU Information Society Commissioner Viviane Reding, whose speech contains many of the themes covered a couple of days back in Munich and Berlin. ICT in Europe accounts for 6% of GDP, but its contribution to growth is 25%, and to productivity gains is 40%. Infrastructure is the focus for 2006, etc. A lot of interesting views, and a fair degree of optimism. Looking around me in the audience, I can't see anyone else using the internet.
