On Wednesday 25th September 2007, Mike Powell took part in a Plenary Panel on the ‘The core aims of knowledge exchange and the challenges of using new technologies to meet them’ at the Web 2.0 for Development conference. The conference was organized  by FAO and other partner organizations.

Mike emphasized the importance of ‘knowledge exchange’ rather than ‘information flows’, and the importance of different information environments in support of rural development. He also argues that social bookmarking, as a means of knowledge exchange, ‘does not yet cut the mustard.’
