In London

One of the reasons for the slow pace of updates has been that I have been attending a conference organised by the UNDP and IBLF on the Millenium Development Goals, and how business can engage with government and intermediaries (NGOs and others) to achieve the goals. It has been a fascinating exposure to a different world. I spoke from the context of a developing country (India) and how ICT (information and communication technologies) can play a role in sustainable development. My key theme: imagine if every village in the world had 3 computers as part of a TeleInfoCentre. What would we then do differently? I’ll discuss this more later when I get some time to write out my thoughts in more detail. Have been discussing this in a narrower context (Rural India) as part of the ongoing Tech Talk series.
