Rural Technologist Consulting

Since July 2004, whenever time permits I have taken up consulting projects from clients in the intersection of open source, technology and small business and non-profit sector. If you think my interests and experience align with what you are looking for, please feel free to contact me ajay@ruralhuman.com.

I specialise in three core areas in my consulting offerings:

  1. Accountability and Effectiveness of Aid
  2. Ethical Considerations in Design of Technology using Qualitative Methods Research
  3. Technology Design Projects acting as a bridge between the developers and other stakeholders.

I also assist in conducting workshops on inter-cultural competencies and racial sensitive awareness among teams who want to do better.
