"This is a fascinating post, thank you! After a superficial look at the links, it looks like tweeting in indigenous languages not only preserves them, but spreads them. I sometimes tweet in Spanish, because I want to reach my Spanish-speaking…"

"Very interesting Gameli, and I do agree with your analogy. Mary's comment about 'blood' takes the analogy further. I can see the role of 'blood' and that of other elements in the human body as related to innovation,…"

Mary Murphy commented on Gameli Adzaho's blog post Rethinking the ICT Sector as the Human Body
"I was thinking along the lines of the blood - without it, there would be nothing for the 'heart' to push around or to keep the brain lubricated. Yet hands and feet also make sense... food for thought. Thanks."

"Many thanks, Mary. End-users utilise the tools built for their needs and entertainment. This makes them  more of the "hands and feet" of the sector as they make things go round... Thoughts?"

Rethinking the ICT Sector as the Human Body

In many respects, the ICT ecosystem can be likened to the human body. In biology, we learn that the organs of the human body are organised into systems, and that each system is responsible for a major physiological process such as energy production, movement or reproduction. ICT similarly involves various stakeholders; each stakeholder has identifiable and not-so identifiable roles to ensure that technology is properly harnessed to drive development. The main stakeholders in the ICT policy…See More

What Steps Could Be Taken by Countries to Encourage Greater Investment in ICTs?

The growing importance of ICTs in all facets of human societies cannot be overemphasized; ICTs facilitate real-time communication, boost productivity (Dubai Internet City, 2012), distribute timely information and open up governance. Further, they spawn whole new industries in smart countries, reduce unemployment, empower the people and build new global cultures, typified by mobile lifestyles and consumption of digital goods, which we all relate to. The question is not whether forward-looking…See More
