“Sometimes doing the wrong thing with technology is better than doing nothing,” says research associate at the South African-based Shuttleworth Foundation, Steve Song. And, he suggests, when it comes to technology, the unexpected should be encouraged to happen.

Song, an open source advocate, was responding to an issue paper by technical activist Alberto Escudero-Pascual, entitled Tools and technologies for equitable access. This is one of four papers commissioned by the Association for Progressive Communications (APC) on equitable access to ICT infrastructure.
