From snowball to avalanche. Article on impact research published

March 1, 2009 in News on publications

And yet another publication to promote on this page. It’s published at the international magazine “D+C Development and Cooperation / E+Z Entwicklung und Zusammenarbeit 2009/01”, and it’s about impact measurement in development cooperation. In the article Balthas Seibold takes the ICT capacity-building project it@coops of InWEnt to illustrate that it makes sense to examine what works – and how as many people as possible can be reached. The article is online both in English and in German.

Open Everything Berlin! Taking part in a global conversation about the art, science and spirit of ‘open’

December 6, 2008 in Freedom to innovate, Open Source IT business

Open Everything is a global conversation about the art, science and spirit of ‘open’. It gathers people using openness to create and improve software, education, media, philanthropy, architecture, neighbourhoods, workplaces and the society we live in: everything. It’s about thinking, doing and being open. Balthas Seibold took part in this global conversation at the 6th event taking place in Berlin. He spoke about “Open Development Cooperation through Capacity Building in Free and Open Source Software?”. The session discussed, how/if the principles of openness are resonating with some key principles of Development Cooperation in general and capacity-building support to initiatives in “Free and Open Source Software” in Asia in Africa in particular.
