Building community, finding new tools
The likelihood is that that the most interesting online discussions about Rwanda will take place away from kigaliwire.com. Hence, this outreach to try and find where these people are, if they are there.
While one of the biggest jobs after building the site is listening to what’s going on on these 50+ social media sites I’m distributing material to, there’s another equally important job that needs doing.
Tools like twitter come and go at a rapid rate of knots. I need to listen to what is happening in the online publishing world and developments within journalism and blogs to find out about new tools and new ways of doing things.
Most of this I do through my personal accounts on twitter and on del.icio.us and through a couple of custom Yahoo Pipes that filter chatter on these topics.
