Social Media in International Development Podcast: Bill Anderson

Nancy White

As I noted earlier , I’m starting to record a set of podcasts about the role of social media in international development. Today’s podcast is with William (Bill) Anderson and focuses on the science and research aspect of international development.

Clouds of international development information

Influence

Owen is based in Ethiopia; his wife works for an NGO that builds clinics. I got a vivid image of new possibilities for mashing up data a few weeks ago at Forum One's Online Community Summit in Sonoma. For me the highlight of the event (though there were many highlights) was a talk given by Owen Barder of AidInfo. He spoke of his vision for a "cloud of aid information".

A 25-year-old NGO, the Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE), was recently taken over by a group of people with connections to a christian fundamentalist church. There are also relationships that the old guards had forged with international partners and local volunteers and beneficiaries that cannot simply be handed over to the new team as with a box of dossiers.

Social Media in Intl. Dev: Podcast with Bill Anderson on Twitter

Nancy White

My first conversation with Bill Anderson on scientific research in international development was so good we kept going to record a “part 2″ on the specific application of microblogging and Twitter in science. Then I started to notice that some of the organizations that I work with in my NGO work with science and data were twittering.

Do collective lessons learned exist?

Joitske Hulsebosch

I've also worked in Kenya together with CARE-International on a credit program for female enterpreneurs in a rice area. An important principle was that NGOs (non-governmental organisations) are not good in managing credit programs because not thinking in business models and NGO workers are seen by farmers as 'friends' and 'supporters'. I visited an NGO in Ghana. I'm currently working in a team where we consult and divide work. The team works quite well in my opinion.

This time I was reminded in a general discussion amongst over 50 NGO managers and policy makers at a learning forum convened by the Global Water Challenge. Appealing to International Web Audiences. I was recently struck again by a decade-old lesson in Forum One's web strategy work: Organizations eagerly developing new web tools often skip the critical step of figuring out what their target audiences are actually interested in. This step is usually essential and often overlooked.
