About ICTlogy v1.0

Some people have asked, some just dared not. What does ICTlogy stand for?
Ok, for those not familiar with this jargon:

ICTlogy = ICT + logy

ICT: Information and Communication Technologies, say, Internet and all this stuff.
-logy: literally, study of; “used at the end of some nouns that refer to a particular science or subject” (Collins)

Thus, ICTlogy, a place that deals with ICT and their (social) uses.

By the way, I pronounce it [aısiː’tiːlədʒı] or, if you prefer it, ai-see-TEE-lo-gee

Though it will surely focus in some subjects of more or less common interest, I’ll try to keep it within the boundaries of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) applied to non-profit goals or, to be more specific, to development, cooperation for development, NGO management and so on.

So, in this ICT4D blog I want to talk about:

  • e-learning
  • e-volunteering or online volunteering
  • intranets and networking
  • knowledge management

all this in the field of development (did I say this before? ;)

Heartly thanks to UOC Cooperation team for helping me in my way to gather this bunch of knowledge I’m supposed to be sharnig.

Zillions of thanks also go to César Córcoles whose help was of most value to set up this blog and to keep ruling it. Trust me: I face a difficult payback :)

Sincere thanks to José Luis Orihuela from whom I learned so much in such little time and, I guess, gave me the final “go, blog it!”.
