3 IST Programme Information Society The European Union writes: “ One of Europe’s most important contributions to the way people around the world are thinking about the revolution in information and communications technologies is the name now attached to it - the “information society”. The general preference in the United States until recently was for the term “information highways”, implying a more limited, technology-based appreciation of what is happening. By contrast, “information society” reflects European concerns with the broader social and organizational changes which will flow from the information and communications revolution”.
