Steve Cisler - Incommunicado Interviews

Through examples from his 8-month, 30,000 km offline travels, Steve Cisler (USA) reflects on whether or not there really is a need for the kinds of information technologies he used to promote as an Apple researcher and IT consultant. Reporting on his encounters, he raises a number of questions regarding ICT4D approaches, including the allocation of development resources, the emphasis on different kinds of literacy, the need to write grant applications that are 'buzzword compliant', and the total-cost-of-ownership model as an alternative and more comprehensive approach to project evaluation.
