Gary Marsden, Professor of Computer Science at the University of Cape Town
(UCT) in South Africa, was a passionate advocate for people – all people.
He pioneered the field of Information and Computer Technology for
Development (ICT4D) and, in his own wonderfully unpretentious way, he
changed the world in positive ways for his students, his colleagues, his
community, the profession and, indeed, the world.  A self-described geek,
he created technology WITH people rather than just for them, so that the
result would actually meet their needs so that it would empower them.
After getting his doctorate and working for several years in London, he
moved to South Africa to teach at UCT in 1999.  There, his research focused
on mobile device interfaces because mobiles are ubiquitous in most of the
“developing” world, and he became world-renowned for his work.  He died
very suddenly of a heart attack in December 2013 at the age of 43, just
days before his birthday.  It is in his honor and memory that this award is
named for him.
