One week and many highlights
It has been a week since my last post and the reason being that I am away on holiday for a week. Not only am I resting but also using this time to brainstorm new ideas and possibilities for the Community Empowerment project. Although a week has passed it doesnt mean that all was quiet. Some of this week's highlights included: - 1 Oct: Mom 2.0 project appeared in the Local Newspaper: Athlone News - 3 Oct: Met with Aki from COFISA for the setup of a Living Lab on the Cape Flats -4 Oct: PR 2.0 Blogging workshop to the Reconstruction Team by Netucation CEO, Ramon Thomas at Cape Peninsula University of Technology -6 Oct: Presented paper at SAICSIT conference -8 Oct: Interview with Bush Radio about the Mom 2.0 project and Mxit Drug Counselling service moving towards 500 subscribers That has been the week of holiday but also looking forward to see how these projects progress as there is an increased interest by the public.
