Re: Virtual meeting before Dakar?

from Mallory Knodel on Jan 14, 2011 07:56 PM
Thanks Jason and Dan-

A total of 4 techies from the US Social Forum will be in Dakar as of
this weekend (me) and over the next week. We will be in Dakar to support
organizing efforts leading up to the forum in any way that is useful to
Igor and the local technology team. If you know of other international
techies that will be in attendance, you can have them contact me in the
event that they would like some collaboration and/or join accommodation.

We look forward to the meeting on Sunday,
-Mallory
