PITCH is sponsoring a think-tank, the so-called "Grupo de la
Piazza", which provides
suggestions and recommendations regarding the establishment of the information
society in Guatemala. The informal group is opened to volunteer experts in the
field of the information society, whose contributions
are made on a personal basis. Contributors so far include M.M. Zaghi, M. Sosa, L. Furlan, D.
Mendoza, E. Cossich, R. Lavidalie, A. Bonilla, J.M. Godoy, and R. Mendia
and M. Bosco, both board-members of PITCH.
The group held a seminar in
Antigua Guatemala on Saturday and Sunday 18-19 of December 2004 with a
view to draft a non-paper to be widely distributed among the main actors of the
Information Society in Guatemala. The non-paper has now become a contribution
to the GuatemalaSi initiative (where "Si" stands for: Sociedad de la
Informacion) launched by
the Guatemalan government during the opening of the
Thematic Meeting on
"Economic and Social Implications of ICT" of the World Summit on the
Information Society on January 17-19, 2005. The non-paper is now public, and
comments can now be provided by
to the PITCH Home Page
