I have been associated full time with a regional community network in the midwestern United States since 1995. I have been teaching courses using a service-learning pedagogy establishing computer technology centers in economically disadvantaged communities since 2000. More recently I have been extending these efforts in Sao Tome, Africa. I am particularly interested in the appropriate application of existing and emerging technologies in underserved communities to meet community-defined development goals.
