Ari Katz, IREX

I am Ari Katz, deputy director for technology and civil society at IREX, a international development nonprofit based in Washington, DC. I work on programs that use technology to help organizations and institutions better fulfill their missions in a variety of ways - with youth, with libraries, with schools, and with governments.   My priorities include figuring out how to bring access to information in new and engaging ways to those who could benefit from it, and trying to integrate libraries more into the development dialogue. IREX brings well-managed projects in a number of countries to collaborations. We have learned that tech can't be dropped in on its own - where it has potential is integrated into a supportive environment of experimentation, learning and capacity building. 

Check out www.irex.org and http://irexgl.wordpress.com/ for more about what we do.

You can find me on twitter at @katzistan or @irextech.
