Abstract: In 1991, the National Computer Board, in response to the government's plan for the future of Singapore, came out with a proposal to make Singapore island technologically an "intelligent" country. In their vision, called "I-l-2000: Vision of the lntellgents land" Singapore will be among the first countries in the world with an advanced nationwide information infrastructure that will allow computers in the home, office, school, factory to be interconnected to one another and to other computers located elsewhere in the world (NCB, 1992). When the IT [Information Technology] infrastructure is in place, Singaporeans will be able to tap into huge pool of electronically stored information and services. Data in the form of text, sound, pictures, video and other forms of media will be able to be transmitted through the high capacity and high speed nationwide information infrastructure that connects all homes, factories, schools and offices.
