So I’ve been given the go-ahead to make a pretty cool announcement:
I have been invited to attend as a ‘scholarship’ enterprise, the Digital Citizen Indaba (DCI) on Blogging in Grahamstown next week. Pro bono, as a guest. How delighted am I?
The conference is headed up by head-honcho bloggers, website gurus, esteemed journalists from print and web media, and…Rhodes University journalism professors. And after all my Rhodes talky-talk, I went home in excitement to eat a large and delicious piece of humble pie, while considering the irony of my previous UCT vs Rhodes rambles a few months ago.
I’ve never been to GTown or Rhodes for that matter, so I’m pretty excited. I also will be able to meet all sorts of interesting bloggers while down there. And apparently I have to drink up a storm at the Rat & Parrot.
I’m being flown down next week Wednesday afternoon and will be there over my birthday. I am very honoured to be a part of this, especially since my blogging domain only really extends to writing, notsomuch the technical-wizzardry side of things. I will learn more about my favourite hobby, which is helluva exciting.
Watch out GTown, I’m about to blow you away.
And thank you Rhodes U for inviting me along!
