The Value of Being There … to resolve contradictory generalizations: • Resistance to new The Value of Being There … to resolve contradictory generalizations: • Resistance to new technology – But computers have glamour • Poverty systemic and multi-dimensional – But households functional • Stark lack of money – But willing to spend • Information critical… – But rarely the bottleneck • Computing needs are minimal – But there are opportunities!

Resistance to Technology… Many factors inhibit use of technology: • High cost • Reluctance Resistance to Technology… Many factors inhibit use of technology: • High cost • Reluctance to depart from habits and traditions • Fear of breaking technology • Lack of awareness of technology’s functional value • Barriers of education or literacy A child trying to explain to her mother what is on a laptop screen.

But, Computers have Glamour Examples of interest in computing technology: • • Rural PC But, Computers have Glamour Examples of interest in computing technology: • • Rural PC kiosk owners see a rise in their confidence and status in community. • A kiosk operator running a near Tiruvallur, Tamil Nadu Retention rates at schools rise when the school has PCs. Office service staff eager to learn about PCs and how to use them. These examples have little to do with computer function.

Poverty is Systemic… Stable system makes escape difficult: • • Lack of money means Poverty is Systemic… Stable system makes escape difficult: • • Lack of money means lack of time to do anything other than survive. Lack of time means less time for education. Lack of education means fewer job opportunities. Lack of job opportunities means lack of money. “Shocks” to household create downward spiral, and there always shocks: • • • Health problem requires loan Loan incurs interest Interest payments prevent capital accumulation A government-sponsored mid-day meal in a Tamil Nadu school.

But, Households still Functional “Good enough” solutions exist: • Credit: All kinds of loans But, Households still Functional “Good enough” solutions exist: • Credit: All kinds of loans available • Healthcare: Traditional medicines, primary healthcare services • Agriculture information: agriculture extension, word of mouth, salesmen

Persistent Lack of Money… Bangalore guideline for 45 minutes of housework a day: Rs. Persistent Lack of Money… Bangalore guideline for 45 minutes of housework a day: Rs. 150 (US$3)… per month! Typical daily wage for agricultural labor: Rs. 60 per day (US$1. 33; Rs. 30 for women) Public-school teacher’s salary varies from Rs. 3000 to Rs. 8000 (US$67 -178) per month.

But, Willingness to Spend Luxury and aspirational consumption not unusual: • Weddings costing Rs. But, Willingness to Spend Luxury and aspirational consumption not unusual: • Weddings costing Rs. 1 lakh (US$2200) in rural villages not infrequent (cf. , avg. per capita GDP of ~US$700) • Mobile phone ring tones popular even at Rs. 10 (US$0. 20) per song A Photoshop’ed photo of a village bride (Maharashtra) • Photography services to “enhance” photos popular. Cost range from Rs. 100 to Rs. 600 (US$2 -12)

Information is Critical… General lack of information hampers quality of life: • Hygiene and Information is Critical… General lack of information hampers quality of life: • Hygiene and healthcare knowledge shallow or superstitious • Poor fundamental and vocational education impedes career growth • Very practical knowledge not readily available: – Government schemes for the poor – Job information – Value of savings and investment A 12 -year-old enrolled in typing lessons at a rural PC kiosk

But, Information not the Bottleneck Access to information not the problem: • Physical transfer But, Information not the Bottleneck Access to information not the problem: • Physical transfer of goods/cash often required. Transport infrastructure is poor. • Levels of formal education very low, even with literacy. Education required to distinguish good information from bad. • Other factors… A petty shop owner in Tamil Nadu – No faith in information source – Lack of time or money – Rigid mindsets

Computing Needs Minimal… Information processing rarely required… • Little use of documents, charts, spreadsheets. Computing Needs Minimal… Information processing rarely required… • Little use of documents, charts, spreadsheets. • Paper , pen, and manual calculation difficult to out-do: – Low cost – Lightweight, durable – Additional training not required
