[afripv6-discuss] synergy - Re: Registration Still Open for AfriNIC/6D

Just thinking: It would have been very nice if we could find a way of synchronising 
events like these two AFTLD and AFRINIC events in ACCRA in April - just so we get better 
synergy. See:
1. 5th Annual African ccTLD Event, Accra,18-22 April 2011, http://www.aftld.org/ 
2 AfriNIC/6Deploy workshop, Accra, 6-8 April 2011, see below

Since AFTLD and AfrNIC have a working MoU, it seems plausible to cooperate on events like 
these where we are seeing a near miss in synergy.

Would synergy not be more productive for our region?
