MobileActive.org. in conjunction with The World Bank, now organizes regular “FAILFaires” where people can share their tales of failure in the field of mobile and telecommunications for development work. The FAILFaire website puts it this way: “It’s time to bring out the failures, with a sense of humor, and with an honest look at ourselves.”

And the Canadian chapter of Engineers without Borders has recently launched AdmittingFailure.com as a similar online space. “Innovation comes with failure,” says Ashley Good, the site’s managing director. “Whenever you try something new, you take a risk. And risk comes with failure. You probably do some things right and some things wrong. And what’s important is reporting on both what succeeded and what failed. And learning from them.”
