Abstract

Despite decades of studies on the use of information and communication technologies (ICT's) and almost as many decades of research on national cultural variables around the world, the people of Bolivia may be among the least studied on both counts. This research in progress provides a brief overview of our research that seeks to begin closing this gap. This study applies the technology acceptance model and individual espoused cultural values using a societal sample of 1129 Bolivian respondents seeking to understand how computers and Internet are being accepted by users in a country where many conditions of ICT development such as infrastructure, electronic commerce or electronic government have been only moderately established.
