A subject which has received considerable recent attention is that of intercultural comparison of the usage of Information Technology (IT) [2, 4, refs]. Many such studies have been presented, but those reviewed to date have the unfortunate reality of 1) using comparisons drawn from the impressions of two distinct groups (one group from each culture of interest) [refs], and 2) of paying only passing attention to the subject of IT worker empowerment , the ability of IT to assist workers in completing their jobs in a more productive manner.
