Developing policy for achieving access and social inclusion in the information society in Ireland.
I was was a member of Connected Communities, an advisory group of Ireland's Information Society Commission (www.isc.ie). I was active throughout the lifespan of Connected Communities, meeting to exchange ideas and develop policy to increase access and inclusion.
Connected Communities developed guiding principles and identified specific actions to achieve an inclusive information society in Ireland. We made recommendations for research, universal design, content, access infrastructure, involving the community and voluntary sector and awareness and promotion.
The work of the Connected Communities group is central to the Commission's report - the Third Report of Ireland's Information Society Commission (December 2000) - which can be downloaded in pdf format from the Information Society Commission web site.
