ICT for development - musings from the fringes

ICT4D/ICTD - ICT for development - is a new area of research in computing that lots of researchers (myself included) claim to be working in.  so I spent some time trying to understand the nature of this new area.  after speaking to many people, i think three issues need to be addressed: the definition of ICT4D; who benefits from ICT4D research; and the political underpinnings of this area.
