December #ICT4D Twitter Chat: Learning From Failure

By Wayan Vota on December 5, 2009

For the December #ICT4D Twitter Chat, we’re looking to learn from our mistakes, find common causes, and brainstorm on how to not repeat them in the future using the #FailDay hashtag on Twitter.
We’ll start at 12-noon Eastern Time (noon Eastern around the world) with introductions, then move into the discussion by asking ourselves these three questions:

  1. What do you see as common ICT4D mistakes, and why do you think they happen?
  2. Building on #1, what common underlying causes plague the ICT4D space?
  3. Of the issues in #2, which ones can we do something about, and what might that action be?

Our hope is to learn from each other to change the failure factors that we can individually control, and recognize the ones we need collective action to remedy.

For those new to Twitter Chats, its a freewheeling conversation around our central questions on the Twitter platform. We’ll archive the Chat too, in case you miss out.
