Lyn @ ICTs for Civil Society Conference. 17-18/07/07
A two day conference with 280 attendees and 60 speakers was held in Johannesburg on the 17th and 18th July 2007. In case you are usnsure (as I was before this conference) ICT is Information and Communication Technologies and includes a wide range of technologies used for communication, including internet and cell phones. As we use our webpage and email newsletter extensively to provide information services, I felt it is important for CARIS to know what is happening in the sector. Some of the outlines of the reports below are taken from the program on the website.
Sessions feedback, highlights and a blog on the conference will be available on the SANGONeT Website.
Reports about sessions I attended and found particularly interesting are available here
