Internal #T1 2010

As I’m again late for the quarterly report and it’s already May, I switched to a division of the year into thirds – this being the resumé of our activities from February to now. Here are the links to the reports from last year:

January was already covered in #Q4 2009, so I’ll start with February. We announced our calendar of ICT4D conferences and events, had our fourth monthly Stammtisch, our Flickr group Images FOR Africa hit 10.000 pieces and I joined the course Pioneers of Change to learn about how to carry out projects in a holistic and sustainable way – also learning lessons for ICT4D.at.

In March the conference LIFT@Austria about innovation took place in Vienna (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4) and Hello Africa was shown in Barcelona at the NOW festival. Furthermore Stan Karanasios joined us for some posts.

In April we became partner of the biggest ICT4D event this year – ICTD2010 (website). Of course we had our monthly Stammtisch again and announced ICT4D sessions at CHI 2010, TedX Accra – Youthinspire and an ICT4D.at and OLPC Austria presentation for which I posted the slides in May.

Our project Zanzicode got sponsored by the Austria Development Cooperation also in May – we’re very happy about that. Furthermore Anders announced DIY Kenya commission at Maker Faire Africa 2010 and Johan Uhle from Hasso-Plattner-Institute at the University of Potsdam, Germany had a guest post about the innovative open source software project to help in rural health care – Sendinel.

For the future we are planning to open up our blog for guest authors – but more on that soon. Also we are currently working on some videos and a short series on ICT4D.

It’s been more than two years that we started blogging for ICT4D.at here on this platform with a definition of ICT4D. A lot has happened since, but we are still here, active in ICT4D and still convinced about the concept.
