About ICTDev.org

ICTDev.org is a news aggregation and analysis site for the ICT4D world, bringing in feeds from ICT4D blogs, news sites, ICT4education sites and more. It presents them back out as a unified feed, twitter stream, and a set of customizable knowledge portals.

ICTDev.org supports people worldwide who use Information and Communication Technologies to achieve solidarity and international development goals. ICTDev.org provides a toolset of information, community news and networks, largely through the ICTDev Pulse, a simple yet extensive stream of current knowledge from various ICT for Development sources.

ICT4Dev.org recognizes that the best ICT4D projects are not ICT projects, but health projects using mobile phones, education projects using PDAs, and agriculture projects using the web. ICTDev.org recognizes that ICT is not a goal in and of itself, but a powerful toolset to backstop critical global and local issues.

You might have noticed a slightly prettier appearance for the site already; we've updated the theme for ICTDev.org to be at least slightly more attractive.

Behind the scenes, the top menu there now has some drop-downs, making it a bit cleaner. One of those drop-downs however is very powerful - custom "filters".

Filters

The new custom filters lets you create your own content feed. Are you interested mainly in mobile4d? Type in "sms mobile cell" and watch what happens. You even get a custom RSS link to your search term which will be constantly updated with new matching news items.

Gone Mobile

This is less new, but still fun - for a light, smartphone or low-bandwidth friendly version of the site, check out http://m.ictdev.org/ . On an iPhone/pod/pad/whatever? We have a custom iPhone interface at http://i.ictdev.org/ (it should automatically switch for iPhone visitors to the site)

As always, please feel free to Contact us with new ICT4D news sources or to remove your feed.
