Blending Theory and Practice in Community Informatics

We met in Porto this week. The International Workshop CIBlend was a wonderful writing-sharing experience. We were a mixed group of ten people interested in Community Informatics from several different nationalities: Portuguese, Kenyan, South African, New Zelander, British, Colombian, Netherlander, American and two Australians.

We had never attempted to write together before and we managed to engage in a very inspiring writing process where we drafted two articles to be published in a journal.
We took photos and exchanged lots of ideas around issues related to the work with communities and the use of ICT´s in different environments and places.

I am looking forward to continue meeting these wonderful group of colleagues, most of them academics but also largely engaged in activism and praxis.
