Market analyst IDC predicts that the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) spending and growth for the Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) region fuelled largely by continued disruption with dynamic market changes driving new or more focused segmentation in vertical markets.
“In particular, government spending will accelerate due to digital inclusion and new digital demands from a more savvy population,” said Graeme Muller, Head of IDC’s Asia/Pacific Predictions Committee. “While governments will typically lead digital inclusion efforts, strong participation from ICT vendors is expected as part of their corporate social responsibility programs.”
IDC predicts the ICT market in Asia/Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) to reach US$154 billion in 2008

The MacArthur foundation is accepting applications until Oct. 15 in two categories: one for “entrepreneurs and builders of new digital environments for informal learning,” with prizes of $250,000 and $100,000; the other for “communicators in connecting, mobilizing, circulating or translating new ideas around digital media and learning,” with prizes from $30,000 to $75,000. Winners are to be announced in January.
The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation continues to pour money into explorations of digital media and virtual worlds — and we’re not talking Linden dollars here.
The giant Chicago philanthropy is creating prizes totaling US$2 million to recognize innovation in digital media and learning. It also is funding a series of programs at the Second Life Community convention, to be held Aug. 24-26 in Chicago. (For the uninitiated, Linden dollars are the currency of that online virtual world known as Second Life.)
MacArthur said the new awards are part of the five-year, $50 million program it announced last fall to explore the influence of digital technologies on young people’s learning, play and civic participation.

Geek Terminal may have to rethink their new power distribution system….U.K. firm Jade Integration has unveiled a computer so small, it fits into a wall socket and is powered via Ethernet. The Jack PC, a rival to the smallest PC in the world, can hook up to a standard monitor, keyboard, and mouse, and runs Windows CE, the stripped-down version of Windows often used in portable devices. It comes with up to 64 MB of flash memory and 128 megs of RAM, so don’t expect to play second life or Half-Life 2 on it, but it should be able to handle basic Internet functions decently.
