Catalyzing Collaboration: Technology
From Reproductive Health Leaders Network
This is a higher-level introduction for thinking about how technology applies to communities like this one. It will probably eventually get merged with the Technology Strategy page. --Eugene Eric Kim
Know your Network
- Be careful about your assumptions.
- Survey data showed that the initial framing of Insaan, while well-intentioned, was misguided.
- Don't look outside of the network for help before looking inside. Surveys and meetings revealed surprising knowledge within the network.
- A few bloggers within India and Ethiopia. Tiny as percentage, but simply identifying that one person within your network allows you to leverage that knowledge as a community.
- Packard Technology Training in Ethiopia
- Different countries have different capacities. An argument for inter-country collaboration.
- Inward-facing versus outward-facing
- Networking the hubs
- Reframing Insaan (inward-facing)
- LDM web site (outward-facing)
- Small-group modeling: This Wiki and the mailing list
- When is it worth it?
Technology as Place
- Why LDM needed a portal. Why the community needs one also.
The importance of basic technical literacy
- GIIP's contributions to dRPC
- Adam, Scott, and Eugene's attempt to implement the Talakawa Project
