  7. 7. Shared ownership? Risks Rewards potentialLeader oriented 4 2Telecentre ownership 2 4Random ownership (floating) 3 ? (too early)organisation (SEEDS) ownership 1 4Key: 1 (low) – 5 (high) Rewards = generating new ideas, generating champions, unique replicable lessons Risks = losing phone, not generating results
  8. 8. Apps vs. social networking1. Social networking is more appropriate Evidence: 3 out of 5 communities engaged in social networking (Facebook + blogs) Why? (Possible reasons) - People are familiar with them (1.3mn FB accounts in Sri Lanka) - Over 2000 Singhala Blogs - People see immediate results. (eg. their own Facebook page) - affordable access to internet (mobile broadband options)2. Apps are not making much progress All communities got excited on Apps, but did not sustain the excitement Why? - Available Apps are not targeted to local needs - Concept is still not familiar (comparing to SMS)
  9. 9. Emerging prospects Champions are emerging at different villages • for micro-enterprises • for Video clip development at ICT education classes • local blogging • Social Media Enthusiasts
