IT for Change at ICTD 2010

At the opening plenary of ICTD 2010 (London, December 2010), Anita Gurumurthy asked critical questions about the ethics and the social impact of the network society, beyond a mere economic approach, as she shared her thoughts on the critical research agendas in ICTD. She also participated in a panel which debated on the issues of openness on the last day of the conference. She argued for how openness would be meaningless unless there were enabling policies both at local and global levels and the open technology architecture was not merely globally present, but also locally meaningful.
