summary ITDG, established by Schumacher in the United Kingdom, has the mission to investigate and to scatter technologies that directly respond to the necessities of the most isolated and impoverished populations of the world, under the motto. “To learn what people do and to help them to do it better”. Applying the previous statement to our work in information and communication technologies – ICT - and specifically to the subject of rural communication, would take us to affirm: learn how people communicate to help them do it better. ICT and particularly Internet have opened us a new scene of work, where local and global are combined and where we must learn of what has already been done to do it better.
