Serina Kalande leads a chat to investigate: What are the factors to weigh
when ‘Blogging Positively’, especially working with HIV/AIDS? Come to our
chat room on Wednesday, December 3rd, at New York 7:00, London 12:00,
Johannesburg, Helsinki 14:00, Nairobi, Moscow 15:00, New Delhi 17:30, Hong
Kong 20:00 and meet with representatives of REPACTED (Kenya), AIDS Rights
(Democratic Republic of Congo), FrontAIDS and Drop-in center (Russia), and
Kwa Mashu Community Advancement Project (South Africa). Then continue at
ActALIVE’s discussion group lead by Janet Feldman of Episode 1,
Also, I look forward to writing about the Minciu Sodas $100 projects which
I'd like to sponsor. Each project should have at least two people working
on it, typically, one person "on-the-ground" and another helping online.
(I think of Graham Knight and Wendi Loshe Bernadette, for example.) Each
person should write about a question they are investigating, and an
endeavor they would like to achieve. We have many pairs of people.
Suggest yourself or others and I hope to write soon.
