Information Technologies & International Development

Information Technologies & International Development is an interdisciplinary open-access journal that focuses on the intersection of information and communication technologies (ICTs) with the "other four billion" – the share of the world population whose countries are not yet widely connected to the Internet nor widely considered in the design of new information technologies.

Bill is an associate professor of Computer Science at the University of Western Cape in South Africa and founder and director of the Bridging Application and Network Gaps (BANG) research group that conducts applied research into information and communication technology for development. His research engages with, among other groups, the deaf community in Cape Town using mobile sign-language video, and rural areas in the Eastern Cape through wireless mesh networks that provide telephony and Internet. He brings an interdisciplinary background with him with degrees in sociology, business administration, and computer science. We are delighted to have Bill join the editorial team!
