The Potholes of Product Development
Nathaniel Manning

Nate, thanks for this post - you have spoken many things that we have experienced first hand over the past decade. It must be emphasized that placing foundation and donor support behind technologies is critical to enable orgs like ours to address use cases that fall outside of the typical consumer concerns. There are many many ways to go wrong in developing web and mobile technologies for development challenges, but perhaps the most severe mistake is to not empower orgs like Ushahidi to design and build tech and to expect the market to solve the specific issues that our implementing partners experience on a daily basis. Congrats on getting this rebuild launched - and thanks for blogging frankly about the challenges.
