Cadbury Fellows Conference 22-5-09


First things first! Went to Marks and Spencers to queue up for the 5 items at a penny each giveaway. One lady felt dizzy while waiting but rather than go home, she rested on a wall. (Get cheap bargains or die trying! Apologies 50p..em..50 cent).
Got to the first session late (travails of a bargain hunter).
The Internet and new writers from Africa. Chaired by Shola Adenekan (Who actually invited me for this conference) it had the following panellists- Tolu Ogunlesi, Muthoni Garland, Uchenna Izundu and Anietie Isong. In summary, all agreed that the internet is God’s gift to Africa.
Someone in the audience spoke about underground cables bringing broad band internet access to the East and West coasts of Africa which I thought was interesting.
Had to make my exist at this point. I had a date with my patients.
Must say well done to Stewart Brown, David Kerr, Shola Adenekan and the staff at CWAS
