E-commerce is starting to find a place in some of the world's emerging economies. Governments and businesses in a growing number of developing countries have begun building the infrastructure needed for online commerce, according to a report by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development. Governments are more and more aware that this can be a tremendous boon to their economy, said Angel Gonzalez-Sanz, an economist with the UN agency.

I found the report for free online here http://r0.unctad.org/ecommerce/ecommerce_en/edr03_en.htm - they even say they'll send you a free hardcopy if you ask (!?); its also got a nice chapter on free/open source software and why developing countries should use it. The report is very "UN"-ish in language, a bit heavy at times. However, there's no anoying sales pitch like you get in many a consultant's or corporate white paper.

I plan to do my holiday shopping…
Online only -- I like the convenience and comfort.
Online only -- I'd shop in stores if their stock weren't so limited.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I like to see what I'm getting.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I enjoy the holiday shopping atmosphere.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I want to support local merchants.
Online and in stores -- I want the best of both worlds.
I'm not planning on doing any holiday shopping.
