[liberationtech] Computing for Global Development: Is it Computer Science Research?'

I actually think its a fine time to be a grad student in this area since 
I think its expanding, not shrinking. I happened to hear of another 
faculty slot for ICTD last night. Anyway, this discussion within CS has 
been going on mostly in places students wouldn't be aware of it, so if 
you're a student in CS and thinking you'd like to talk to a faculty 
level person about this area, feel free to get in touch. I'm happy to 
chat and tell you what I know (because I'd like to see more faculty 
doing this work, which requires more grad students doing this work, who 
then go on to take the faculty positions).
