The interaction between the information society and the significant changes in both information and communication technologies would bring about profound effects on our lives, particularly in the twenty-first century. As our focus remains in the European aspect of the said interactions, our study concentrates on how European developments are influenced greatly by the understanding of the visions made by other societies, such as that of the United States, and by these technological developments' global character. Since the European character of the vision for the information society may have notable differences from that of other societies, we aim to explore the public expressions of European policy makers and how Europe differs from other areas in terms of its technological, social, cultural, and economic development.

Keywords:   information society, interactions, information technology, communication technology, Europe, global character, policy makers
