A preview of what’s to come….

Digital Media Lounge

This afternoon I’m leaving for New York to cover the UN MDG Summit. I’ll be participating in the Digital Media Lounge and will be blogging, pretty much non-stop!

I’ll be covering as much as I possibly can, but here are a few things I’ll be focusing on:

  • ICT4D (Information and Communication Technologies for development)- how development and humanitarian agencies are using communications and new tech to reach development goals
  • Disaster relief 2.0 – how organizations and governments are using collaborative technologies to better (hopefully) coordinate aid and humanitarian assistance
  • Media’s impact on development- what is media’s role? How can we strengthen media?
  • If, and how, any of these new technologies better include people with disabilities into development, or whether they have been considered…

I’ll also be covering the Obama and Ban Ki-Moon speeches!
