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.

Gary Marsden was a full professor of computer science at the University of Cape Town where he directed the ICT4D research center. He passed away suddenly in December of 2013, shortly after chairing a very successful ICTD conference in Cape Town. Gary was a passionate scholar of international acclaim and a dear friend to the ITID community. He is already deeply missed.
