Point to crisscrossed

Just a quick point to the blog post “Web2fordev one year after – a critical review” on crisscrossed.net.

Christian Kreutz of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ- German Technical Cooperation) writes about the lacking impact of new technologies on development work.

But if I look back at what has happened in the development field during the last year, I have to say that frankly I am quite disappointed about how little has been happening. I expected the disruptive potential to be more exploited. [from here]

ICT4D is not a magic bullet after all. It still requires a lot of work, like convincing the people to use it where it makes sense.

Make sure you read the comments, too.
