Bank, T. W. (n.d.). Wiring the Barrio Information Technology and Low-Income Communities. Retrieved from


June 28, 1999: The rapid spread of information technology (IT) is having a strong effect on the world, physically, socially, and economically. The field of development is not excluded from its far-reaching influence. Clinic speakers presented diverse ways that IT meshes with development in general and upgrading in particular, ranging from how to use computers to set up basic street addressing systems, to what effects a community owned computer has had on a remote Andean village, to the newest digital technologies and how they can aid planning and policy-making. Clinic speakers and attendees posed and addressed questions pertinent to the use of this new technology in development. The result was an intense discussion, out of which came many more questions and the strong urge to continue the dialogue. From this, new institutional relationships (university-agency, agency-NGO, etc.) are beginning to take root to hopefully create a stronger and more diverse network of relationships.
