Aren't we making mountains out of molehills here?  What percentage
of internet users in the Western world have past ict experience and/or
technological background? The whole technology is at most one generation
old, so we are not talking about something deeply ingrained in any
culture.  Every contests provider claims (with varying degrees of
truthfulness) that its website is easy to navigate for everybody....

There is nothing wrong with collecting any sort of information, but
for what practical purpose?  Can we honestly say what's of interest
to pearl fishers in Sri Lanka and llama farmers in Peru, apart from
some generic terms like health & education?  Shouldn't the contents be left to
local market forces and entrepreneurs??  Big web success stories (eBay,
FaceBook, YouTube etc) were not created because a group of wise experts
decided they should  be created.
