In February 2001 I officially began by journey in the field of Information and Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D). First, as a practitioner, leading the Development Cooperation programme at the Open University of Catalonia, running projects focused in e-learning for development. Then, as a scholar, as a lecturer at the School of Law and Political Science at the same university.
These eight years have been roughly condensed in an interview that Martin Konzett, Florian Sturm and Anders Bolin (all of them from ICT4D.at) made to me during the Cooperation 2.0 event in Gijón this month.
Here it is:
By the way, the array of interviews that the ICT4D.at collective have in their YouTube channel is really impressive and it’s surely to become the most complete collection of videos of ICT4D people available. Worth visiting it.
If you need to cite this article in a formal way (i.e. for bibliographical purposes) I dare suggest:
