Greetings from Torino where Maria Agnese Giraudo, Sasha Mrkailo, Paolo
Pumilia and I had a successful day at the COMMUNIA meeting for the European
Union's thematic network for the Public Domain. We are planning on inviting
Samwel Kongere to join us for the January meeting in Torino. We will also be
able to invite other Africans or future workshops. We need participants in
five areas of the Public Domain: Education, Libraries, Technology,
Economics, Citizenship. Please speak up if you would like to participate in
the email working groups. I especially encourage our Africans and Indians
because this will give us an opportunity to bring you to a meeting in Europe.
We have also proposed to host the April meeting in Lithuania. Andrius

> The 3rd. Annual EuroAfrica ICT meeting ended yesterday at European
Commission building # 25 in Brussels, Belgium. As expected, there was a
strong European presence with a disproportionally less African participation.
I was the only Ghanaian and participant from the United States there with
Kenya dominating with four representatives, about three coming from South
Africa, and one Tanzanian based in South Africa who actually gave the keynote
address. The other speaker coming from Ghana, Kwame O. Boateng from the Kwame
Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Kumasi was not given a visa -
so unfortunate! .
> The conference itself highlighted on the numerous problems of Sub- Sahara
Africa and how Europe through the European Union, could intervene through its
ongoing ICT initiatives. At the end of the meeting, my conviction of going
back to Africa to undertake a major computer initiative had been
substantiated. That greater percentage of Africa´s economy depends on its
rural population of about 70% who till the land. Unfortunately, most of these
are either semi or outright illiterates. To help improve the situation, ICT,
through elearning and other computing education outlets would be needed to
make the rural folks educated and connected to the rest of the world through
the Internet. Getting to know what is going on elsewhere among other people
who also live on the land would be a big motivation and economic booster
towards a more productive agricultural and other economic ventures. Thank you
all for reading!
