12th August 2008: WWTW workshop at Hyderabad

Samanvaya represented by Ram participated in the 1-day brainstorm workshop organized jointly by IBM, NISG and Byrraju Foundation at the Byrraju Foundation headquarters in Hyderabad.

The New technology, 'Listen to Believe' promises to eliminate the dependency on keyboard, mouse and monitor for web access. The simple access to a local network through voice and mobile phone is a major breakthrough. If this technology could be further thought out and made into a package of relevant applications and simple content management methods, it could definitely serve the rural community rather well.

The rural ICT implementation, RICT for short is almost a decade old and such newer technologies need to build on the learnings from past mistakes (more than past successes) so as to be relevant to the locality and the user community.
