WorldChanging: Tools, Models and Ideas for Building a Bright Green Future: An Interview with Inveneo

September 30, 2006

JuliaD never gives up on her love/hate relationship with technology for developing environments, blogging now about:

Yet another example of the rugged hardware out there available for use to linking up rural places and places under conflict and stress. It actually sounds like it has all the compoents I’ve been looking out for to do a project.

WorldChanging: Tools, Models and Ideas for Building a Bright Green Future: An Interview with Inveneo notes:

Inveneo.org is a nonprofit that connects the most cut-off people in the world–they provide communication technology to people in developing regions or disaster zones which lack the infrastructure for normal telephone and internet connections. Their connections have helped rural villages spawn business, hurricane victims get aid, even helped the sick cure themselves by talking with doctors.

  1. her love/hate relationship with technology

    It’s so true. The other day I was asked (yet again) why I have a cell phone which I almost never use. My response? “To make my father feel better about letting me out of the house unescorted.”

  2. NO one will ever believe, ‘cept perhaps you, that I’m ‘anti-technology’. Tech is bad until someone can show me how/why it will improve interactions.
