Vivien,

Just downloaded your Resource Mobilization Guide and it's a wonderful 'new resource' in itself, aand an important input to the Telecentre movement as its relevance in the Difital Society continues to evolve, to grow in importance. Your Guide is very readable, very clear and concise. It's also a great conclusion, an appropriate end result to your recent excellent series of conversations on the subject with the global Telecentre audience. I am sure it will be an inspiration for many, just as it has been for me. Richard
