The recent publication of Living the Information Society in Asia fills a glaring gap in knowledge about how ICTs have a role in specific sustainable development outcome areas. The book describes the interaction of people and new ICTs in Asia as the technologies seep into everyday life, such as how mobile phones forge relationships among families separated by migration, how camera phones threaten personal space, how cultural identities are strengthened in call centres, and how religion is incorporated into the new communication technologies people use.
