Date: Friday, August 8, 2008, 3:03 PMChris you asked for news of the books. I'm not sure if you will have seen the email below from Samwel Kongere.
Samwel, Ken Owino, Maria Agnese and I met in the chatroom yesterday to discuss the ideas in the book. Our discussion is in the chatroom archives. The book is stimulating deep thought, and providing useful new insights and ideas which people are keen to apply. I feel the book is a great incentive to create vision - but it would be very helpful to also have a follow up book to give some detailed guidance. For example - micro finance is the stepping off point, but how does someone go about setting up a a local micro finance bank?
Date: Saturday, 26 July, 2008, 9:51 AMThanks Dave,Call either Dan or me, we are both in Nairobi and Surely it is great to have you home.

Date: Monday, 21 July, 2008, 9:08 PMChris and everyone
By now David Mutua should be safely on the plane flying home to Kenya.
On Saturday we were able to meet Sofia Bustamante at the Brixton Hive, and we collected ten copies of the Mohammed Yunus book Creating a World Without Poverty, for use in East Africa. Thank you for making this possible Chris.
I was also able to introduce David to Mamading and Tav.
Tav and Sofia had just come back from making videos about the work of Mohammed Yunus. When the videos are edited they will be short and I hope they will help us to learn. If they might be useful then we will need to find the best way for people to see them. I think that they will be on youtube, but I wonder if people in cyber cafes can watch youtube ok. Video can take a long time to download. A cyber cafe manager may not provide sound. Not everyone can get to a cyber cafe. There are various possible problems. We will need to rub minds once we know more about the videos and their relevance.
Mamading told us that he has written a summary of chapter one of "Creating a World Without Poverty". I am hoping we will be able to share it through LearningFromEachOth er.
