Although a few years out of date (2003), I found this article to be an interesting jumping off point for looking at ICT in rural areas. The article focused on the difficulties in disseminating information and tech through established points such as schools and looks at projects that target rural schools as dissemination points for ICT. The paper points out several case studies and while it does not go into great detail about any of them, it acts almost as a portal to looking further into each project and observing successes and failures. This seems a valuable compilation of information, in an accessible format. The extensive references are also a valuable resource for further study.
