    In this article, we review the work of the IFIP TC8 WG 8.6 on Diffusion and Transfer of Information technology in the period 1993 through 2003. Starting with working group’s aim and scope declaration, we analyze the 113 contributions that have been published in the seven conference proceedings of the group. While we can conclude that the group by and large works toward and within its own aim and scope declaration, we also find the group as of yet has no joint terminology and no shared theoretical basis. These are challenges which the group should take up in its future work.
