Long-time analyst of development regimes, Jan Nederveen Pieterse (USA) summarizes Incommunicado 05 as 'civil society meets development', since commercial parties and governments were not represented at the conference. The current vortex of change, in which corporations try to maintain information monopolies, calls for a new political rendez-vous in which emerging information economies can challenge these monopolies in areas like intellectual property rights. Digital orientalism is a concept of our times: Western content and representations are deeply wired into all levels of information technology. According to Nederveen Pieterse, the world of development studies has been one of great fashions and plain humbug, but also very profound criticism, great hopes, struggle, and negotiations.
