So we are back to square one, or the proposal for a WG to address all these issues.

Why am I so adamant and cannot keep stressing this point? Because of millions of euros and dollars being spent in overlap on these ICT infrastructures and enabling technologies, including but not limited to ICT for development (ICT4DEV) by UNESCO, FAO (AIMS), UN (Global Pulse) and the EU to mention just Paradiso (www.paradiso-fp7.eu).

So far only librarians, some parts of the academic world and research institutes, a few corporations and science journal publishers want to address the big picture.

Is anyone interested in helping break down the big picture into markets, providers, users, technologies, available national ICT infrastructures and then combine the results of several polls and/or surveys which cover all possible and relevant target groups for polling/surveying into composite overviews?

Yes, so maybe make another poll, as I suggested :-)

                              In the context of the poll I see the
                              following as infrastructure components:

                              integration. Thus, I struggle to see how
                              it might exacerbate existing computing
                              infrastructure challenges across nations
                              with poor ICT infrastructure.
