Blogging the Humanitarian Technology Challenge

Just a heads up that I’ll be camped out at the Humanitarian Tech Challenge today and tomorrow, sending back reports.  HTC, a partnership between the IEEE and the UN Foundation & Vodafone Foundation Technology Partnership, seeks to define and develop sustainable solutions to humanitarian challenges in the developing world.  These solutions should be able to be implemented locally and “within the environmental, cultural, structural, political, and socio-economic conditions where they will be deployed.”
