Some good ol’chaps
Twelve fine young African journalists from 8 different countries met in Nairobi on july 2006 to discuss about the continent’s economic problems. How are things doing now?
About the povonline
It’s been a while since I dreamt and thought of putting some of my works on line. At last, povonline is born. Here are samples of drawings, editorial cartoons, photos and stories… things to discuss or ponder about. It’s a start.
I was hesitating between a blog and a website. Actually, I have a rough sketch of a website in my hard disk but for financial reasons, I wasn’t able to launch it. I am not sure if the blog does the job but if you say so, then I keep it. Moreover, my financial situation hasn’t progressed that much.
Your comment on the various topics as well as on the blog are most welcomed. Feel free to share your opinions.
Lastly, I’d like to pay tribute to the people who initiated me to web design and inspired me to get on line. I think of Julie Mc Creadie, Alan C. Robles and Peter Prüfert (former director of the International Institute of Journalism of Berlin).
I also think of my friends and relatives, my fellow journalists (hi, mates) all over the world.
And a special thought to the regretted reporter Duncan Shiels (Reuters) who was a remarkably courageous person and very emulating by his exemplary professionalism.
