Prasad Ram - Videos


Opening remarks

Information transparency can help us overcome many major issues in the society


Are there models that we can borrow, to provide searchable information



Changes come bottom-up -- example of RTI

Entrepreneurship may be easier than earlier, but competition is more

Mortality rate of entrepreneurship is very high, yet…

What keeps us on toes

All of us can share so much, and still compete at a different level

Society needs to adjust with the speed with which information is available

Example of Mapmaker in which community contributed to compilation


Citizens have to be empowered with information so that they can ask the right questions

Once communities go online, polling is an important attribute

Consumer demand can help bring out information held in internal systems

Information is the oxygen for society

Lot of information comes from personal interaction -- case of Rajasthan

When will PC and broadband penetration happen to a greater extent

Entrepreneurs understand a local need and build a solution

Mobile devices vs shrinking size of PCs

Emphasis in R and D

We look for leapfrogging…

When technology is built for the masses it is very likely to become mainstream
