efta2006Knowledge Powers Development was the overarching theme of this year’s Eschborn dialoge, a discussion forum bringing together most of Germany’s development community. Balthas Seibold was a panellist of the workshop “WWW and knowledge – free access to knowledge as the basis for education and economic development”. His credo: New technologies and techniques such as “Free and Open Source Software” can offer interesting opportunities to “power development”. More on the workshop is online in the programme brochure. For a summary of the discussion, also see the blog of Netzpolitik (in German).
