This article has been adapted from a speech by the author at International workshop on 'Building a Common Path : Beyond WSIS', organised by Sarvodaya (www.sarvodaya.org) and supported by IDRC, Canada in Colombo, Sri Lanka, on 24 February 2006.
We cannot achieve progress in ICT4D when public acceptance of ICT is not yet established and our work doesn't happen in a social vacuum.
