Incommunicado is a weblog that focuses on the spread and reappropriation of ICT across the "Global South". The idea of being (held) incommunicado - to be in a liminal state vis-a-vis multiple regimes of information as well as human rights - serves as point of departure for analyses, critiques, and projects beyond the standard agenda of ICT-for-Development. Currently, incommunicado emphasizes five (research) areas: ICT for Development, WSIS, NGOs and Civil Society, ICT and Environment, and Post-Development (click here for an overview).

Once you register and login, you can post to any of the five topic areas or submit calls and other announcements.
