Hi all,
I unfortunately can't attend the Chatham House event due to pre-booked holiday, but am hoping somebody from here will, and report back.  Looks like a great event.
Will be attending:

As does
in London on 13th to 15th October.
Not specifically intl dev/digital divide related - but good events re Mobile Internet, and M-Learning

Hi Jeff, all


Thanks for bringing this to the Group's attention.


In fact, Steph and I are both going to be at the Conference, talking separately but discussing similar digital divide and mobile web issues.


Hope to see some of the other members of the Group there?


All the best.
