Formatted abstract
My paper describes a study that links gender with technology use in Singapore and Kuala Lumpar. It argues that technology use is a significant 21st century social phenomenon due to the rise of consumption-based economies and government plans for techologically-led recoveries in the Asia-Pacific. It describes how gender interacts with other cultural differences to shape the social use and effects of technology.
