Development 2.0: submit your ideas

This page in:

2918422306_6c9fcd2419_2After the UK's Social Innovation camp, the development 2.0 competition wave has crossed the pond (ironically, all of this happens as talks of the "madness of the crowd" seem to be far more popular than any reference to its "wisdom"). USAID has just announced the launch of the "Development 2.0 Challenge" to award innovative uses of mobile technology to maximise development impact. The initiative's tagline: "Your best ideas can help USAID develop innovative technological solutions to issues related to poverty in developing countries."

I hope the focus will be on business models as much as on technology.

PS: Chris Kreutz has just posted a nice round-up of "web 2.0 for social innovation" initiatives around the world on his blog.
