Software Studies, rethinking computing for development in Africa

imageThe field of computer science builds on the lifetime work of people like Vannevar Bush and the Western industry, military and government interest he represents. Most of what has been developed post 1940 is built to serve these basic interests. Modern day computing has almost wholly emerged out of a western context and with a western user in mind. The subsequent ‘computing age’ is thus an artifact of the same culture, embedding its values at different stages of its development. Recognizing the historical roots of the computing phenomena, and the culture it embodies, helps us to understand its odd shape when placed in other parts of the world. Only by recognizing these points of intersection are we able to see viable alternatives.

At the same time, software’s growing role in society makes it an important component of any ICT4D debate. Software increasingly acts as the glue that holds society together. It is the middle layer that collects, organizes and distributes our data and information. It is the organization of code that increasingly controls our systems and manages our actions. As Mathew Fuller explains in his book Software Studies, a Lexicon, ‘as software becomes a putatively mature part of societal formations (or at least enters a phase where, in the global north, generations are now born into it as an infrastructural element of daily life), we need to gather and make palpable a range of associations and interpretations of software to be understood and experimented with.’ It is the pervasiveness of software and its critical function that makes it an important point of study. At the same time its relevance is not exclusive to the North but is increasingly part of African life too. It is only a matter of time before each person on the African continent owns or has access to a mobile phone and is thereby subject to the same ‘infrastructural element of daily life’ experienced elsewhere. Software is increasingly pervasive the world over, also in Africa, and it is exactly in the fringes of the global information society that the questions need to be asked most.

As Matti Tedre and Ron Eglash argue in their article Ethnocomputing, ‘there are two central arguments: a design/social justice argument and a theoretical/academic argument. The first argument is that a better understanding of the cultural dimensions of computing can improve the design of computational devices and practices in disadvantaged groups and third world populations. The second argument is that an understanding of the cultural dimensions of computing can enrich the disciplinary self-understanding of computer science at large.’ Both arguments open up a new space for analysis that not only better serves the needs of marginalized populations but demands a better understanding of computer sciences at its core foundations.

This line of thinking aims to break down the historical mantra, the idea that solutions come from the north and problems from the south. The challenge in creating a ‘paradigm of equals’ stem from our own definitions and the intrinsic belief that knowledge is localized in developed countries. Matti Tedre and Ron Eglash make the point that, ‘one of the most difficult barriers to the research of Ethnocomputational ideas is the unequal assessment of knowledge in locations of high social power (e.g., Western, first-world, high-tech) and knowledge at the margins of social power (e.g., indigenous, third-world, vernacular).’ To this extent Ethnocomputing moves to encompass both worlds meaning neither is given preference over the other. To this extent, there is reason to believe cultural variation should be celebrated as opposed to the technology that too often precedes it. We fail to recognize our cultural differences as important sources of ideas, alternative lines of thinking that lead to new forms of problem solving. If anything, it is cultural diversity that puts oneself, and the technology we use, into its proper context.

Andrew Pickering argues science builds on a history of adaptations. This is not a process of complete replacement. Out of experiments society receives critical feedback needed to improve a design or modify a system. He makes clear that this process builds on technical, social, and natural relations. As cited in Ethnocomputing, ‘there are undoubtedly universal physical laws that govern the operation of computational devices, but only through a multiplicity of experiments – whether carried out by silicon chips, carved African game boards, or the generation of theorems and proofs – can one learn those disciplines.’ It is this learning process that is critical to understanding, using, deconstructing and building effective technologies. Unfortunately, and as seen with the OLPC project, this process too often occurs without the input of the very stakeholders who ultimately depend on a technology. A greater value should be placed on the cultural feedback loops otherwise too often ignored. Whether it is a computer hacker living in the global north or a young .net artist living in the global south its clear knowledge builds from the scientific process the world over.

By studying the role of software in a place like Africa it becomes possible to reflect on the subject of software itself, and in a dialectic turn, steer its further progress. It is important to look beyond its use and into its local production, where applications are deconstructed and designed for a local context. Otherwise the individuals who have the knowledge, skills and motivation needed to translate modern technologies to the needs and desires of their local surroundings. This approach looks beyond the technical and places a new focus on these ‘cultural bridge figures’ instead. By understanding the ways in which they connect to the global information society we are able to better understand how technologies need to be modified and adapted to meet the needs of the cultures they represent.

Given the rapid spread of mobile communication and growing Internet connectivity, it is only a matter of time before the entire global population is connected, the reality being that most of the new users live in the developing parts of the world. This phenomenon requires us to rethink computing and forces us to recognize a rapidly changing context in which it is applied. More specifically, it means we need to appreciate the perspective of new users and thereby broaden our historical perspective. As these new digital populations become part of an increasingly powerful economic base, as seen in countries such as China, India and Brazil, alternative versions of the information society are bound to appear.

Fuel rise ‘will force job changes’

imageSome drivers will have to change or quit their jobs if August’s planned fuel duty increase goes ahead, an AA/Populus survey has claimed.

Of 16,647 AA members polled, 4% said they would change jobs to reduce mileage if the 3.02p duty increase is not scrapped while 3% would have to abandon their job because of unaffordable travel costs.

Skilled service and manual workers are most at risk, with 9% fearing for their employment should the duty rise take place.

Southern England, the Midlands and north west England are the regions where there is most concern about jobs, the survey showed.

The planned increase would push petrol prices up to around 145p a litre, with diesel rising to 150p.

Those polled were asked what would be the effect of such prices, with 63% saying they would cut back on car use, 18% would cut back on grocery shopping and 23% would abandon or delay the purchase of furniture, home improvements or luxury items.

AA president Edmund King said: “Pump prices that many people can’t afford means lost high street spending, higher transport costs, rising inflation, lost tax from lower fuel sales, lost tax from businesses going bust, lost tax from workers losing their jobs and a bigger unemployment benefit bill.

“A hike in fuel costs at the start of the holiday season will backfire as many people are already cutting back.”

Quentin Willson, national spokesman for FairFuelUK, said: “Budget day should be Cut Fuel Duty Day.

“We have given the Government evidence based on their own model that even a modest cut in fuel duty of 2.5p per litre would create 175,000 jobs and boost growth. This boost to growth means that the Treasury will not lose any revenue overall.”

Pakistan to take on Sri Lanka in Asia Cup today

imageDHAKA: Pakistan will face their first big test in Asia Cricket Cup league match in Dhaka today when they take on Sri Lanka, who were outclassed by India on Tuesday.Pakistan started their campaign on a winning note by beating Bangladesh on Sunday even though it was a close shave for them given the home team s fighting performance in a steep chase.But for unpredictability of Pakistan, both the teams seem quite a match for each other on paper.

Even Pakistan has a long batting order to boast off and they have destructive Shahid Afridi, who can snatch a game but, like his team, is not consistent enough. He can be game-changer one day but can also be a complete letdown the next.

But Pakistan can bank on his leg-break bowling which comes in handy almost always.Their openers notched up good scores against Bangladesh but the experienced middle-order comprising the likes of Younis Khan and Misbah-ul Haq failed to fire. Bowling too was unimpressive against a side which is considered a minnow at international level. Pace spearhead Umar Gul was expensive and would have to get his act together quickly as his form is crucial to the team s chances.Sri Lanka, on the other hand, suffered a blow on Wednesday when influential all-rounder Angelo Mathews was ruled out for the rest of the Asia Cup due to a calf injury. Sri Lanka failed in chasing job against India. Faced with a mammoth 304, the islanders fell short by 50 runs despite the fact that they have a batting order that runs deep.Now they are in a must-win situation, Tuesday loss has put them under pressure.Sri Lanka, who arrived in Bangladesh with lot of confidence after finishing second in Australian tri-series, are in danger of crashing out early.Format of four-nation tournament does not allow teams to relax unlike tri-series in Australia where each side played against the other four times before the finals.Here, they play only once against each other. If Sri Lanka defeated by Pakistan, then will have only one game left, against hosts Bangladesh. Even a win there might not be enough to take them to the final on March 22.

Pakistan, who won opening game, can move closer to a final berth with a win here against Sri Lanka.Sri Lanka will have to recall Lasith Malinga, who was surprisingly left out against India. In such a crunch game, Malinga will have a huge role to play.Squads:Pakistan: Misbah-ul-Haq (captain), Mohammad Hafeez, Nasir Jamshed, Younis Khan, Umar Akmal, Hammad Azam, Asad Shafiq, Shahid Afridi, Azhar Ali, Sarfraz Ahmed (wicketkeeper), Saeed Ajmal, Abdur Rehman, Umar Gul, Aizaz Cheema, Wahab Riaz.Sri Lanka: Mahela Jayawardene (captain), Angelo Mathews (vice-captain), Tillakaratne Dilshan, Upul Tharanga, Kumar Sangakkara, Dinesh Chandimal, Lahiru Thirimanne, Thisara Perera, Farveez Maharoof, Sachithra Senanayake, Nuwan Kulasekara, Lasith Malinga, Seekkuge Prasanna, Suranga Lakmal.Umpires: Steve Davis Paul Reiffel (Both Australia) Third Umpire: Sharfuddoula (Bangladesh) Match Referee: David Boon (Australia).

Backpacking Travel Tips Advice

imageTraveling is fun but you really get confused sometimes about what to pack while planning to go on a trip. If you travel often, then it becomes very easy for you to decide what to carry. But if you travel seldom or going on a trip to a place where you haven’t been before, then it becomes a little trouble deciding about backpacking.

Much depends upon your destination and the trip duration. If you are going for about a month or more, then you need to carry a lot of stuff with you. Likewise, if you are going to a place where you might not find many a things, even then your backpack becomes heavier.

Here is a little guide about the backpacking tips and advice if you have a trip planning ahead.

• Significance of the trip

It is very important to first decide what kind of a trip you are going to. If you are going on a professional trip, then you will carry some formal wear for the meetings and evening wear for a formal evening. If you are going for a casual trip, then you will get some casual clothes and a couple of formal wear as well, just in case some occasion comes up. But if you are going for outdoor hiking or camping, then you will carry with you the clothes that are more practical and comfortable.

• Multifunctional items

Women should pack their clothes very thoughtfully since there is a limit to luggage weight. A good backpacking advice is to carry clothes that are interchangeable. Try to carry a number of tops with a pair of jeans. Same applies to your shoes and other accessories. Try to carry those items that you can wear with a number of outfits. Likewise, try to carry those clothes that are light, wrinkle free and are easily washable, so that you will not get into much hassle.

• Get Information about the destination

A good backpacking tip is to get some information about the destination much before time. This will make it easier for you to backpack. See if the climate is colder over there, then you will have to carry a pair of sweaters and other heavy clothing. If you are going to a warmer place, then a couple of jeans, light wear and swimwear will do the job.

• Expensive items

It is an important backpacking advice that you should not carry expensive jewelry and other expensive belongings with you on your trip. Moreover, never leave your jewelry at a salon or a spa. It is advisable that you should not trust anyone with your belongings while at the trip.

• Keep space for shopping

A good backpacking trip is not to backpack too heavy. Keep some spaces in your bag, in case you want to go for some shopping at your trip. That will be a good idea and it will remind you of your trip when you get back home.

Having Travel Insurance

imageTraveling is a luxury. In this economy, with everyone watching their money, people are being more aggressive in looking for the best travel deals they can get. Many only get to have one nice vacation each year since money is so tight. When you only take one nice trip each year, you want to be sure that you would be covered in case you have to cancel it.
Travel insurance has always been important but now it’s more crucial then ever. Let’s face it, you never know when disaster or illness will strike you and your loved ones. When you plan a big vacation, you often book it months in advance and there is usually a stipulation about when you are allowed to cancel without penalty. Having travel insurance in place gives you the peace of mind you need so you do not lose your hard earned money.
Travel insurance is very important for anyone with elderly parents or that has a family member with a chronic condition. You can never plan for a time when illnesses will not flare up, someone takes a nasty fall, or even someone getting something totally unexpected just before the trip begins.
Shop around and compare travel insurance policies for price, coverage options, and deductibles. Do not just go with the one with the lowest premium without checking all the variables.
