      Masimba Biriwisha is back home in Zimbabwe. We invite everybody to chat
      with us this Friday at 19:00 Nairobi time, 18:00 Harare time, 16:00 London
      time, 10:00 Chicago time. Come to http://www.helproom.org (which leads us
      to our WorkNets chat room).

      Please join us! Masimba leads the collection of books for Zimbabwe. I'd
      like to support distribution of "print-on-demand" books by our
      participants and thereby build relationships. Also, I'd like to
      experiment with community currency in Zimbabwe (which has a huge inflation
      rate), for example, in the form of women's pads, possibly as a way to park
      money. I share our chat. Andrius

      57:56 Masimba: great
      58:08 Andrius: Also, would it make sense to start a community currency

      58:49 Masimba: mainly
      59:23 Andrius: also we might be interested in publishing our own books
      for distribution in Zimbabwe and Africa

      59:45 Masimba: let talk more about it
      59:52 Masimba: great
      59:54 Andrius: and so we could encourage publishing and that would be
      a more personal connection
      59:59 Andrius: and we could "print on demand"
      00:07 Andrius: especially if there were definite readers
      00:12 Andrius: we could make a catalog of writings
      00:15 Masimba: that would be great
      00:17 Andrius: and print them out as requested at libraries
      00:20 Masimba: POD is the way to go
      02 Andrius: yes I imagine because 1) shipping books is expensive 2)
      books offered are often not relevant 3) POD could make for personal
      relationships 4) POD encourages the "authors" for long term relationshps
      and investments so for our lab it might be great
