THE WORLD’S BEST E-CONTENTS 2009

Digital Libraries, interactive maps, flash information and personalized guides have come to the offices and living rooms of many. But what about people who are offline or do not speak English? Who don't even know what Web or Internet or Mobile Messaging are? No, the problem is not only that they can't get to a computer or can't afford a mobile device. The problem is that they don't have access to high quality contents and useful applications that would allow them to improve their lives. This book introduces you to richness and diversity of creative contents and innovative applications from the WSA global contest of 2009 so that more people become aware of what is available and can be shared and the digital divide might be a bit closed.

What is the Content Gap? As world economies focus on creating and improving technological products, the issues of quality contents are considered insufficiently. Technology and what technology produces belong together — one cannot exist without the other. The “what” however, the core of it all, remains a fraction of what it could be - due to an appalling lack of financing. This book provides an overview of the value and usefulness of creative contents and innovative applications from the WSA global contest of 2009 so that quality producers and creative designers gain recognition, success in the market place and financing for their next projects and products.
