Abstract: The rapid development of information and communication technology (ICT) is perhaps the most influential driver that is fundamentally changing the world and the societies we live in. ICT is (a) changing the communication fabric that is linking the elements of societies together and is (b) automating human routine work. The latter is enabling automation and creating an abundance of food, industrial products and information. This abundance is pushing the value creation towards the creation of new knowledge and meaningful (rather than only functional) products and services. Information, knowledge and meaning are the three key commodities of the modern economy. Innovation and creativity are key processes creating these commodities. The two activities are very significantly supported by information and communication technologies. ICTs are politically acknowledged on several levels of future planning: in R&D programs, development strategies, future studies and visions. However, a scientific base for all this is lacking. The interaction among ICT, innovation and society at large is a subject of research projects such as EINS and spawning the birth of a new interdisciplinary science, Internet Science - that is studying the interaction between information technology and society.
