Paula Romanow is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Mass Communication at Carleton University, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. She has a long-standing interest in the role of networks in sustainable development, especially in a rural context, and the impact of ICTs upon these networks. Her previous research involvement has included exploring how community-based HIV/AIDs organizations learn, as well as the relationship between elders and information technology as used in everyday business transactions. She is currently conducting research for her dissertation which is exploring how ICT usage in rural community economic development organizations is changing those organizations, as well as what impact this might have on the culture of the communities as a whole in the context of rural Nova Scotia.
