I'd like a link to the Service Science Readling List that Jim Spohrer mentioned.

Steve Cisler

I'll ask the conference organizers if they can get that.

Here are the unanswered questions submitted to the fourth panel at the April 21 conference:

We don't need sophisticated technology to read the contents of an old library. A digital library needs a huge infrastructure of technology just to read it. What kind of difference will that make regarding the longevity of good libraries? Will 'peak oil' make any difference?

If high tech companies believe that enlightened social policy will overcome the digital divide, does it follow that these same companies will be creating internal social and policy awareness department for competitive advantage?

Growing pains vs. growth of a (the?) divide. Yes we are in the early stages. Yes there will be much more diffusion (penetration) What is to prevent the considerable capabilities that have emerged from enabling abuses by the haves of the have nots? Egalitarian availability is not inevitable. Think about robber-barons and Detroit's destruction of mass transit.
