The ICT4D Jester

Kentaro Toyama is an expert who became skeptical about "the endeavor called information and communication technologies for development”, after years working in this field. He wrote an interesting article and also a book to call our attention for the simple truth that people are always more important than tech in any social change strategy. At the blog ICT4D Jester, he questions, critiques, and sometimes lampoons ICT4D.
