Sounds like something from Sergio Amadeu.  (Premier da Silva appointed

Amadeu's book on the subject is called "Digital Exclusion: Misery in the
Information Era", but you're obviously looking for something shorter.

Hmm, or might you have had in mind the eloquent letter from Peruvian
congressman Dr. Edgar David Villanueva Nunez to Microsoft's general
counsel in _that_ country?  If that's possibly it, then please see:
