The potential for technology growth in lesser developed countries (LDCs), particularly within the Arab World, is enormous (Loch, Straub, & Kamel, 2003). Within the Middle East, the projected demand for information technology hardware and services will be $8.9 billion by 2005 (Pyramid Research, 2001). Yet, in spite of this significant promise, information technology transfer (ITT) has been slow in this region. Clearly, there is more than money at issue in diffusing computing and the Internet throughout the Arab world, and the less developed world in general.
