Lyon Declaration on ICT4D

The post-MDG Lyon Declaration on Access to Information and Development [pdf] is very welcome in that it represents a clear advance over the original Millennium Development Goal on ICT4D, but in my opinion the declaration does not go far enough in giving the most disadvantaged people effective control over their own development, and seems to rest upon some false premises about rights and information in producing development.

A Theory of Change for ICT4D

Duncan Edwards posted a great piece last week entitled "The revolution will NOT be Open Data" in which he riffs on Gil Scott-Heron's critically-conscious lyrics. Like Duncan I have 'a lingering sense of unease' that all is not right in the world of open development / open data. Like Gil Scott-Heron I don't think we can just 'plug in, turn on and cop out'.
