CAN Infotech: Contribution to ICT in Nepal

        Well, it's been a long time since I've not written in my blog. As I had my exams and constant loadsheding had topped it, I could not do anything but wait. And now I'm back with new post which is about the ongoing CAN Infotech 2010 and it's contribution in the field of ICT in Nepal. For me CAN Infotech is not just an annual event, but also a foundation stone which led me to the path of Information Technology.

Well, as must of you know that CAN Infotech is the biggest IT event and exibition held in Nepal. Now in its 16th year, it has gained much popularity and also has roused interest in people about ICT. It is undoubtedly one of the the pillar of Nepal's ICT field. 16 years ago when it had just started, technology was a thing of rich and famous. Very few had chance to fiddle with those bulky computers. 16 years back now, it is not surprizing to see people using mobile phones and using internet on the go.
And events like CAN Infotech has played an important part for this to happen. It has provided us knowledge and informations and alos cleared many myths and hype surrounded around ICT. Till this day it has been succesful in its aim of provding useful information to people.

However, there's a lot to be done to uplift the level of ICT. As these events are centered in Kathmandu only, many people outside valley are deprived of the awe of technology. Even those who are familiar with technology have been getting wrong information due to some of the vendors who have little or no knowledge about technology. So these event would have been really helpful for them. In recent years, CAN has started regional events of ICT in some parts of the country but they are not enough. There should be more  such event and in regular basis. Only then we can catch up with technology which is far ahead of us.
