Today! #ICT4D Twitter Chat – Learning From Failure

By Wayan Vota on December 12, 2009

Don’t forget – today we’re having the December ICT4D Twitter Chat – What Have We Learned From Failure?

Starting at 12-noon Eastern Time (noon Eastern around the world) and using the #FailDay hashtag on Twitter, we’ll be 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?

Be sure to follow both ICT_works and Michael Downey to keep up with all the Twitter Chat action, and for those not on Twitter, you can watch the action via the handy embed below or this separate webpage:



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.
