hello Meddie, everything ok?
I saw you wrote some nice articles on the Telecentre Leaders Forum in Riga, could you repost them here or just add the URL of the RSS-feed of your blog into your page here? (for any doubts: check the Welcome Kit the Ning freaks group created).
Thanks a lot Meddie for all the hard work you're doing for this network!
