  • 2009 Information and Communications
 for Development : Extending Reach and Increasing Impact

    Khalil, Mohsen; Dongier, Philippe; Zhen-Wei Qiang, Christine; World Bank (World Bank, 2012-03-19)
    The information and communication
 technology (ICT) is transforming interactions between
 people, governments, and firms worldwide. In developing
 countries, farmers receive updated crop prices and public
 health officials monitor medical inventories by text
 messages. Women are empowered to make decisions and access
 new opportunities through online information. Entrepreneurs
 obtain business licenses in a fraction of the standard time
 by applying for them through municipal government web sites.
 And in an increasingly integrated global economy, ICT
 enables people to access and share knowledge and services
 around the world. The first report, Information and
 Communications for Development (IC4D) 2006: global trends
 and policies, analyzed lessons on developing access to ICT,
 examined the roles of the public and private sectors in this
 process, and identified the benefits and challenges of
 adopting and expanding ICT use in businesses. This second
 report, IC4D 2009: extending reach and increasing impact,
 takes a close look at mobile and broadband connectivity. It
 analyzes the development impact of high-speed Internet
 access in developing countries and provides policy options
 for rolling out broadband networks and addressing the
 opportunities and challenges of convergence between
 telecommunications, media, and computing. The report also
 presents a framework of e-government applications and
 discusses various country experiences with the institutional
 and policy arrangements for e-government and for the
 development of the local information technology (IT) and
 IT-enabled services (ITES) industries. The common thread
 running through these topics is the development impact of
 ICT. Finally, the report presents summary tables on ICT
 sector indicators in 150 economies and introduces new
 performance measures in terms of access, affordability, and
 ICT adoption in government and business.
  • Use of Social Media in Dental Schools: Pluses, Perils, and Pitfalls from a Legal Perspective

    Parkinson, Joseph W.; Turner, Sharon P. (UKnowledge, 2014-11-01)
    One of the ways dental education is changing the way it is preparing the next generation of learners is through efficient utilization of interactive social media. Social media, which facilitates interaction and sharing of new ideas, is being utilized to educate students, residents, and faculty. Unfortunately, as with most improvements in technology, there are growing pains. Faculty, student, and patient interaction on social media platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter, can lead to inappropriate or embarrassing situations. Striking the appropriate balance between free speech rights of students and faculty and the need for colleges and universities to have efficient operations is often left to the judicial system. The concepts of free speech and contract law and how each is applied in educational settings should be understood by students, faculty, and administrators. This article provides a review of legal cases that led to current social media policies, as well as present-day cases that exemplify the application of these principles, to help dental educators gain a greater understanding of the boundaries of protected speech. It also provides a set of sample guidelines for communicating through these media.
  • Responsabilidad contractual del comercio electrónico en los contratos de compraventa-business to consumers- celebrados en Colombia

    Gutiérrez Prieto, Hernando; García Escorcia, Claudia Tatiana; Gómez Quijano, Cristian Camilo (Facultad de Ciencias JurídicasDerecho, 2018-09-18)
    El desarrollo inminente de las telecomunicaciones ha permitido el crecimiento de la economía del siglo XXI y ha sido un factor determinante dentro del llamado comercio electrónico o llamado también e- commers, pues la llegada de éste revoluciono la forma tradicional de hacer negocios como por ejemplo en transacciones comerciales realizadas a través del intercambio electrónico de datos (EDI), el Internet, la transferencia de fondos electrónicos, la administración de cadenas de suministro, etc. Sin embargo, en los últimos años también han crecido los delitos informáticos a través de medios electromagnéticos generando cierta inseguridad jurídica hacia los consumidores de este medio. Para ello las legislaciones adoptaron regímenes especiales para regular este tema. En concreto, Colombia a través de la Ley 527 de 1999 y a través de su decreto reglamentario 1747 de 2000, se regula la forma de utilizar los mensajes de datos y el general el comercio electrónico. Así mismo, a través de la Responsabilidad civil contractual en caso de un eventual conflicto, las partes pueden llegar a pedir la indemnización de sus perjuicios si cumplen con los requisitos exigido para ello, sin mencionar que también cuentan con mecanismos como la protección al consumidor entre otros.
