This is precisely the most important fact in the current world where
Internet is becoming a most pervasive communication medium and its usage is
still in its infancy. It is going to take independent individuals to take
the initiative to see how the technology can be used effectively; We cannot
bank on organizations and their leaderships to do it due to various
structural issues involved. To show how far behind the "older" generation
of leadership in the use of the technology is, I had personal experience
with a well known individual, who while all the time he talked about new
technology, he always chose not to use e-mail for responses to me and
instead always used nice letterheads and letters printed on laser printers
and personally signed and mailed using snailmail even though it was much
cheaper and efficient to sent a quick e-mail. Of course he was not spending
his own money; he was spending the organization's funds even though the
amount involved is miniscule.
