There is no doubt that the most momentous transformation that the world has undergone in recent times has to do with the socio-cultural evolution that is unfolding in what we have come to know as “cyberspace”. In effect, the Internet has created a universe that not only parallels the concrete world that we are used to but that also brings with it altogether new and unprecedented opportunities across all aspects of life. The result, of course, is that it is making amazing contributions to human development – and not just in the developed world but also in developing societies such as ours. Indeed, one can argue, and justifiably so, that cyberspace provides a readily available opportunity by which the developing world could leapfrog into the future and “catch up” with the developed world in terms of economic development in spite of the fact that much of that world has not yet undergone a phase of industrialisation in the traditional sense.
