Dear Dr. de Alwis,
It was lovely to meet you the other day. Thank you for being willing to allow me to attend and represent SciDev.Net at the event. I just wanted to share our coverage with you.
At this link you’ll find our Twitter coverage: and on this link you’ll find our posting on Facebook:
On our SA regional twitter feed we have a modest 129 followers but are gaining ground every day. (The main twitter account has over 10,000 followers.) Our Facebook page is more robust with over 24,000 likes.
It would be wonderful if you could circulate this around those who attended or anyone else you think might find it of interest.
SciDev.Net has plans to stage events for researchers, scientists and journalists in the region and we hope to work with local newspapers to promote conversations around science and technology and how the two can contribute to development.
