Abstract: Development and advancement of Information Society1 in on agenda of many nation states today. As scholars, we can contribute to the effort by attempting to reconcile the official rhetoric with the real life situations of “netizens2. This paper is inspired by the publication of Leonard Jessup and Daniel Robey [2002], in which the authors use anecdotes to demonstrate what advanced service possibilities are afforded by ubiquitous technology as contrasted to the residue of social behavior. This story illustrates that the success of establishing Information Society should not be measured by the number of available services to citizens over the wireline and mobile Internet. The ultimate measure for success must be the extent to which people are aware about the availability of relevant content and are using the services [Daniel and Wilson, 2003, p.285].
