Technology and Doing Good
… two separate groups discussing using technology for doing good. The first set of discussions, primarily amongst large aid organizations, converge around ICT4D (or information and communication technology for development). The second set of discussions, primarily amongst smaller non-profits and web 2.0 geeks, are around SM4SC (social media for social change).
… the true power of communications technologies lies in creating disruptive models of social change. That’s the space that really excites me and I’m hoping to be a part of more conversations around such disruptive uses of technology for doing good.
