I have been promoting the idea of "Development Informatics" in South Africa since 2002, and I was delighted when CIRN quickly took the lead! We were delighted to be able to host CIRN2005 and CIDC2006 in Cape Town.

I am passionate about information and knowledge sharing and I already have a wiki at (it's aimed at "conventional" IT and IS management but has some useful, generalisable, lessons). I want my students and colleagues to be able to share their work and the CIRN Commons is surely the way to do it.
