This reminds me ... I have spoken in the past with a number of
people interested in organizing a DO-AFRICA online event like we did for
Asia last year <http://groups.yahoo.com/group/do-asia/messages/1>.  Let me
know if you'd like to lead a month long online exchange on the role of the
Internet in democracy, governance, media, etc.. across Africa.  These
events are great starting points that help connect people interested in or
involved in similar efforts.

APC Project launches dynamic mailing list: [EMAIL PROTECTED]

The Association for Progressive Communications (APC) has recently launched
an online Africa ICT Policy Monitor website that aims to enable
organisations working for human rights, freedom of expression, and
progressive government policy to be able to monitor proposed and new
legislation and regulation affecting the Internet in their region.

"Most people may not realise that regulatory frameworks exist that actively
promote - or restrict - access to the Internet by the general
population," says Emmanuel Njenga Njuguna, coordinator of the Africa ICT
Policy Monitor. "The aim of the APC monitors is to gather information about
and demystify the policy territory for human rights groups, civil society
organisations, local Internet service providers   whoever has a stake in
promoting equitable, secure access to the Internet in their country".

A mailing list, which will highlight alerts and features from the website,
as well as regular updates on Africa ICT policy, is being launched alongside
the website to keep organisations and interested individuals informed as to
the latest developments in the field. The mailing list will also alert users
to the availability of exclusive resources on ICT policy in Africa from the
website, as well as the latest developments in African responses to global,
regional and national Internet Rights campaigns.

We extend a warm invitation to interested individuals and organisations to
join this informative and dynamic list.

Regards,

Heather Ford
