View Thread > Development and the Internet > Rotisserie Feedback > Hello to everybody!
Please describe your experience with the Rotisserie during this BOLD series. How did your rotisserie discussions differ from other online discussions you've had? Were your posts and the posts of others substantively different that they would have been using other discussion tools? Did you participate more or less in the discussions due to the nature of the Rotisserie discussions? Did you take more or less time writing your answers than you would have on a typical discussion board?
I am new here. I'll post more responses later.
Thank you very much for your acknowledgement that I am new here. When I read (this) reminder on my Inbox I felt uneasy because, I knew my assignments were sent on time. I had trouble to find the place to write a response to "I am new here" and forced to send as a comment. This is not as a response. I do not see/locate the site where I am supposed to write.
My friend Cherl Langdon -Orr (above) found BOLD series excellent, while I did not have the experience. This actually means that, "I am new here"
However, I read good news from home that from 23 to 25 April, there was a technical training to address an ICT problem in Tanzania. The workshop, was funded by the DfID and the International Institute for Communication Development (IICD). The title, Exchanging local traffic locally is very interesting. We learnt from our Part 4 (Architecture) of IXPs and their role to solve the Internet connectivity that is expensive and slow. The paper (7 th May) quotes a research data that Africa Internet Service Providers (ISPs) lose over 400 million US$ annually. The money pays for peering of local traffic in international exchange & international bandwidth providers.
The Internet society (Maxwell, C. 2000) the UNESCO paper talked of promises resulting from universal Internet access and issues/challenges related to the process. I hope that my country will try to solve the problems that are solvable. Mrs. Swai.
My friend C.C.Yen,
How are you?
I am pleased that you and me share the same project. I am new here. I'll post more responses later. Did you like the BOLD 2003 Development and the Internet? I had a very illuminating experience. Of course there were times I could not find a place to post my comment. I am congratulating myself today; I could locate where to post my assignment with least disturbance. Tomorrow is the dead line. Do you think that you could possibly meet the dead line my friend?
I have not have the time to read the threads or add to threads. Those module notes are knowledge and sometimes when I respond to board or rotisserie, I make some references. I am not sure about your country but from your name, I assumed that much work has been done within the Internet. I hope we can collaborate so that I learn and like wise do some work in my home area. Next time I sign in, I'll try to see your response. Your friend Mama Swai.
