1st in Africa - The Digital Citizen Indaba on Blogging

Here is an event I am looking forward too. The Digital Citizen Indaba (DCI) on Blogging will be held in September (14-15th). Where? Well, right here in Grahamstown, and as being part of the New Media Lab, I will be involved in the coverage and participation of this conference which is a first on African soil.

There will be about 90 African bloggers, citizen journalists and media practitioners, partaking in the event and it will be very much focused around developing skills through practical workshops and discussions with experts from around the globe.

Read Colin Daniels (DCI event co-ordinator) official press release here.

Watch this space for further info on the conference.
