ICT Innovation in poor village in Mozambique

I'm heading home to Vancouver today; very excited but busy as ever. I have to admit that I have been mainly occupied trying to organize my way back to Africa for the next year coordinating dates and places to stay. I'll be living in Nairobi for the next 3-4 months trying to understand how technology is or isn't helping in alleviating poverty. In the meanwhile, I'm working to clean up this dissertation and get on with this new study. Any motivational words because it sure is difficult during the holiday season. My supervisor said 8 hours each day on the weekends - I guess you have to do what you've got to do!

Heading to Nairobi

I apologize to all my regular readers for the non update on the website for ages. Time starts to fly when you are caught up with field work, then the immediate visit of three of your crazy friends from Vancouver, and then learning a few days ago that I will now be moving to Nairobi for my next adventure! I am now in the Jo-berg airport off to our first meeting about the PICTURE - ICT and Poverty reduction project and when I return, promise to devulge all the stories of the last 3-4 months and the expectation for the following year!
