ABSTRACT
The United Nations' Millennium Development Goals, established in 2000, include the following: "Make available the benefits of new technologies-especially information and communications technologies." A majority of technology's benefits have been concentrated in industrialized nations and therefore limited to a fraction of the world's population.<p>The authors believe that technology has a large role to play in developing regions, that "First World" technology to date has been a poor fit in these areas, and that developing regions thus need technology research. Despite the relative infancy of technology studies in developing regions, anecdotal evidence suggests that having access to technology has a beneficial economic impact.</p>
