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.

What do you think about Hillary Clinton's use of private email servers during her term as Secretary of State?
She broke the law and should go to jail.
She violated guidelines -- the issue is overblown.
She placed important state department information at risk.
Her servers might have been more secure than the government's.
I really don't care one way or the other.
