    schema:description ""Efforts to develop the Internet protocols were international from the beginning. The Internet has significantly contributed to globalization processes and transcultural interactions which will continue into the future ... Bridging the cultural gap between the technical and political communities should not be underestimated as cooperation between these two stakeholders plays a central role, especially in the digital transformation of society ... As the system evolved and spread, we hoped that the Internet and the technologies that support it could contribute to greater democracy, freedom of speech and human rights worldwide ... There is no guarantee that a single, global society will emerge from the widespread use of the Internet and ICTs." Vinton G. Cerf "This book gives deep insights into global networking processes and a signal that can stimulate hope. At least for one of the most powerful technologies available in the world, we have similar attitudes worldwide and between all cultures, concerning usage. We see clear convergence in access and usage which is due to the relative low cost of technology, its huge enabling potential to mobilize people and the increasing emphasis on education as well as higher income worldwide." Franz Josef Radermacher "Mr. Ünver has his finger on the pulse of our times and demonstrates clearly and comprehensively, with his elaborations, that communication media offers, more than anything else, the chance for establishing global balance. He states clearly that it is not cultural or even religious differences that hinder the use or access to these technologies. Rather, the divergent use of communication technologies results from differing conditions concerning prosperity and education. Through his book, he supports the global demand of taking a path towards more balanced income and education levels, in line with the positions of the United Nations, OECD and the European Union." Rainer Wieland The interdisciplinary approach of this book gives detailed insights into empirical relationships between overall social key figures of states and cultures in the fields of ICT (digital divide/inequality), economy, education, and religion. In a sense, the historically singular technical progress in the field of ICT shapes humanity at different levels and develops a hybrid (intelligent) human-technology system, a so-called global superorganism. The main innovation is the combined study of digitization and globalization in the context of increasing social inequality, collapse, and sustainable development and how a convergence towards a kind of global culture can take place. Thereby, the spread of ICT, Internet Governance, balance between the central concentration of power and the extent of decentralized power distribution, the inclusion or exclusion of people and states in global communication processes, and the capacity for global empathy or culture are discussed. The book intends to bridge the 'cultural gap' between computer scientist, engineers, economists, social and political scientists by providing a mutual understanding of essential challenges and possibilities of a global information and knowledge society.
