Putting some back
Well things have been very busy at eKhaya ICT. This morning at about 1am I submitted a major revision of the wikipedia article for ICT4D
. What was there was just a bit stunted, so I had to do something about it. However, writing an encyclopedia article is really quite tough. I suppose it becomes easier with time, but it is quite different to writing a paper. What you see here represents quite an investment of time and patience... Deep respect to all the Wikipedians who have built that amazing facility.
In the intervening 2 weeks since I last blogged, I have gotten the people on board to start a new German/International non-profit organisation that should support grass-roots ICT4D with the specific aim of introducing Web2.0 technologies to help put Africa on the Internet.
I also spoke to the Free University of Berlin. I am quite hopeful that we will be able to expand the research component which is present thanks to the University of Fort Hare.
So telegrammatically, that's kind of what has been going on. I can't give away too much right now though, so if all this sounds very interesting to you, perhaps you want to email me. eKhaya Contact
