The authors' projects in several developing regions encountered many technical, cultural, and environmental challenges that are outside the scope of typical computer science research. By sharing some of their experiences, they hope to increase understanding of these issues. They also hope to help others, especially researchers from outside these regions, avoid their mistakes by suggesting steps that might at least mitigate the problems.

This article is part of a special issue on Emerging Economies.
