Information Society can be loosely defined as a society integrated by complex communication networks that rapidly develop and exchange information. Information society is becoming an earthly phenomenon and the goal of every country is to ensure that their people achieve the status of information society. Norway is one of the richest countries in the world. But, is Norway also an information society? If so, to what extend? Analyzing these two questions is the scope of this paper. This paper first develops a simple measuring tool and then uses the tool to measure the strength of Norway as an information society. The paper shows that Norway has achieved mixed results in ensuring that its people achieve the status of the digital citizens of an information society.
