Welcome fellow survivors of the recent apocalypse! On Friday 25 November, we gathered at the Cambridge Union Society —the last building standing—in preparation to hoist our life raft into the Cam and sail away to a new land, to build a new society from the ground up. Suddenly . . . Five more survivors were found; they had been at a "Global Health" conference when the building collapsed, trapping them in the rubble! With our life raft full, we asked if we could risk making space for one more person, whose expertise was indispensable to the health of our future society. Although our Devil's Advocate made a case for us to leave them all behind . . .
The event 'Global Poverty and ICTs' was held in Cambridge on 26 October 2010. It was the launch of a themed year on ICT4D (ICT for Development) run by the Humanitarian Centre in partnership with ARM. www.humcentre.org/ict4d
