South Africa: Blogging the Digital Citizen Indaba

Simone Purteman writes about the Digital Citizen Indaba taking place in South Africa: “For an event which focused largely on blogging, a search using various blog aggregators and Google hasn’t turned up all that much yet from bloggers on yesterday’s Digital Citizen Indaba session. Perhaps too much Rat & Parroting?”


  • Hi Ndesanjo!

    It was great to meet you and thanks for an inspiring keynote address.

    I’ve just updated my blog post to include the link to keyword searches on Afrigator (and Amatomu), which turns up more results Which other African blog aggregators should I put links to?

    Keep in touch!

    PS My surname is spelled Puterman, not Purteman :)

  • During our evaluation meeting today, we discussed this and will be focusing on a more comprehensive and strategic strategy for next year. In fact, Ndesanjo has suggested that we use the DCI Blog as a platform to take the discussions forward. I think this is a great idea and, although we really used the blog and the DCI Wiki as a training tool for our students this year, we’ll hopefully beef it up over the next few days. As they say, watch this space.
