Rabat - The third millennium saw the advent of the digital revolution in a very spectacular way: computers invaded every home and place of work, the Internet became as important  as a morsel of bread, if not more. Satellite television revolutionized our taste, hype and culture and smart phones affected greatly our social habits. Thus, information and communications technology - ITC - became part and parcel of our daily life. Today, we all wonder, earnestly, how did we cope with life before this revolution?
