Congratulation for DNet and Infomediaries...!

I have written a series of 4 books on Infomobilization which may be useful for the infomediaries.

However, it is currently in Indonesian Language. Hopefully someone or an organization will take it up to translate to English and other languages.

Cheers,
Azul
