A happy new year to all.
I’m reaching out to the CT WUG community to find out if anyone would be interested in answering some questions / sharing some of their experiences in community networking?
As a brief introduction, myself and a colleague are currently undertaking a research & design thinking process hosted by the C&D Institute with support from the City of Cape Town. For our project we are investigating the potential of community wireless networks as an alternative internet deployment paradigm for developing contexts and are hoping to have conversations with members of community networks around SA to help make sense of some of the challenges (and opportunities).
We believe community networking holds exciting possibilities for serving the underserved in South Africa and we’d appreciate any insights CT WUG members could offer. All perspectives are welcome.
If you are interested in sharing your insights / experiences and have 10-min to spare this week, kindly drop your email below or reach me at mine (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can set up a time for a casual phone call (or, if you’d prefer, via email/whatsapp).
Thanks everyone & take care,
