2 Introduction In early 2003, an exciting development took place in the IT industry with the consolidation of a federation by four IT industry associations — Internet Service Providers Association (APJII), Computer Business Association (APKOMINDO), Telematic Software Association (ASPILUKI), and Association of Animators (ANIMA) The federation was needed to bring about  a greater coordination in IT and Communications convergence and to produce a better synergy  a greater cooperation through a ‘single point of contact’ for domestic and international relations.

9 Information Technology and Convergence Information Technology (IT) is rapidly converging with Communications and Computing Technologies such that a new agglomerated industry has emerged. It is interchangably called just “IT”, IT & Communications (ITC in the European Union) or Information Communications Technology (ICT in the United States), “Telematika” or “Infokom” in the Indonesian language.

12 Indonesia shows potential in realizing the Information Society “The growing gap between the information-rich and the information-poor can only be bridged by concrete interventions. Pure declarations of goodwill will not be enough.

Bruck, a distinguished researcher and the catalyst for WSA at the ICT for Development (ICT4D) event at the first WSIS. “The growing gap between the information-rich and the information-poor can only be bridged by concrete interventions.
