Dear all,

For our reading group meeting next week, we will be discussing the paper 'Exploring and Analysing the African Web Ecosystem’, available here http://sathiaseelan.org/docs/10.1145@3213897.pdf <http://sathiaseelan.org/docs/10.1145@3213897.pdf>. The session begins by a brief overview of the paper and the floor is opened for all participants to discuss the work.

I will be starting a skype group for this and will be glad if you could kindly drop your handle here - if we are not already connected.

Best regards,

Musab Isah

We currently meet once a month to discuss research and general literature related to particularly Africa's but also the global Internet. The aim is to keep abreast with the research and development around the Internet and how we could utilise the research findings and the new information for the benefit of the Internet community.

Other participants, who are expected to have read the paper prior, also chip in with their insights about the work under discussion. The lead discussant alternate for every meeting. We are, of course, open to suggestion on how to make this session a worthwhile event.
