May 17th marked the World Telecommunication and Information Society Day (WTISD). To celebrate, NetSquared used this year’s WTISD theme, “Better Life in Rural Communities with ICTs” to guide their Net2 Think Tank question for May and there was a tremendous response from many members of the public. Individuals working with nonprofits, academics, librarians and entrepreneurs based in countries around the world responded. NetSquared had some of their best Net2 Think Tank responses to date!
Specifically, they asked you to share your ideas for closing the digital divide for people living in rural areas all around the world. The responses have been compiled and is now available on the NetSquared blog.
Topic: How can the lives of people living in rural areas be improved using ICT? What are your tactics and best practices for helping rural communities using web or mobile technology? And, which projects are already doing this well?
Also while this month’s Net2 Think Tank is now closed, you’re always welcome to add your feedback on the subject at the bottom of the NetSquared blog post.
