Is There A Better Phrase for “ICT”?

Comments (11)

As co-chairman of the Colorado Governor’s Innovation Council, I’ve been regularly exposed to the acronym ICT.  It’s not a familiar or comfortably one to me and I chronically call it “CIT” or expand it incorrectly.

I am looking for a phrase that covers IT + Communications + Software + Internet.  These are the four components of ICT that drive a huge chunk of business activity and innovation in Colorado.  In my world as a VC, I call this software + Internet, but that doesn’t cover the full landscape.

My friends at Silicon Flatirons have put together a Wiki titled Innovation in Colorado and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) where we are compiling the history of the ICT ecosystem in Colorado.  If you have participated in this in any way, feel free to jump on and add your thoughts and facts.

What’s your favorite phrase or acronym for this?
