    I'm a practitioner. I came to this meet-up group via Fail Faire - where I was awarded the accolade of "greatest failure" (and my own OLPC) partly through my spectacular inability to make fruitful connections with academia (although individual academics have been friendly and welcoming). Maybe it's just me, but in over a decade of practice I have found the cultural disconnect with established ICT4D academia much harder to overcome than the culture gaps I meet in rural Nigeria. My last attempt to reach out was at ICTD2010 where I was so discouraged I finally decided to give up. I look forward to hearing from others this evening - and hope to find encouraging news of genuine partnerships.
