This year the 10th ZA World Wide Web conference was held in Cape Town, South Africa, 3-5 September 2008. One of the large tracks this year was the e-Society track at the conference which we managed to publish 4 papers and 4 posters in the proceedings. Three of the papers and 3 of the posters were looking at the use of technology for community empowerment.
A copy of the proceedings will be available soon but you can find the programme here. More exciting news is that one of our Posters,("Blogging: An alternative approach to empower citizens in communities with tension", J Pereira & M Parker) won the "Best Poster" award at this year's conference. This is an opportunity for us to get more involved in the reconstruction of our communities.
