Why is there low uptake of teleworking in developing world?

Basing on the enormous advantages of teleworking or telecommuting as known by many, one would wonder why its not embraced in the developing world. Available statics about teleworking only have figures for America, Europe, Asia and Pacific regions but not Africa. Since Africa usually represents the biggest majority of the developing world, this question of low uptake of teleworking will focus much on Africa.Before we more on the reasons for the low uptake of teleworking, for starters, what is…See More

Taste of Cyber Crime in Developing Nations - The Ugandan Version

During the online classes on cyber security at Diplo Foundation a lot was discussed about cyber security and cyber crime. At that time most of the discussion points seemed alien to some of us from developing countries, sorry my country Uganda is not a developing nation but an underdeveloped country with out a cyber security team in police, no CERT teams whatsoever in the nation and a very naive society as regards cyber security. Most of the points of discussion were theories in Uganda, with…See More

Demographic effects on Social media and Internet penetration

Demographically we have three generations, that is X, Y and Z. Although the years of 'cohort start' of these generations are not truly distinct, these generations can be used in studying on how Internet and Computer penetration has affected different generations. For starters, generations XY and…See More

The Internet and the way we find love

When studying computer and collaborative education back then in high school, we used to mention a number of advantages and benefits of the Internet but there was this advantage that, I come to see today, we never used to mention. I am not sure whether the Internet was not yet developed enough to be considered as a means for online dating or we were not mature enough to be given that information.Yesterday being a 14th of February, a day when some people who celebrate love only once in a year,…See More

"Personally, I see no problem with unmasking a perpetrator of a grave crime if the request is truly legitimate. My concern is with abuses of such requests, or in cases which breach a person's fundamental rights (ex free speech). Some cases are…"

"Thank you Stephanie, In the same line, would you support companies (Internet providers) who when asked to unmask a user, go ahead and do so? The two examples in the text above seem to end up differently. Google seems to be willing to unmask any one…"

Profile Information

Did you take the Internet Governance Capacity Building Programme - IGCBP from DiploFoundation? If so, in which year? Who was tutoring you?
Yes, June 2011, Mwende Njiraini & Tracy F. Hackshaw
Where did you ¨discover¨ this Community portal?
From the Class Blog
What are you currently doing today and projects you have related to Internet governance?
Currently I am still acquiring knowledge on Internet Governance and using that information to do knowledge dissermination through out my local communities like mailing lists and the people I work with.
I am offering free services with a local organisation in training teachers of primary and secondary schools on computer basics, through which I hope to increase computer and Internet penetration so as to minimise the digital gap.
I am actively engaged with the ISOC-Uganda Chapter and the I-network, groups that actively angage in policy discussion for the good of Internet governance in the country.
In which ways the capacity building provided by Diplo has helped you and your community in Internet governance issues? (Question only for IGCBP Alumni)
The initial capacity building course in ICT Policy Strategic Planning enabled me have an advanced view of Internet governance and ICT strategic issues, and be able to debate on the national ICT platiform, (I-Network) issues that affect Internet governance.
The second phase of Cybersecurity has enabled me to guide and educate people I work with to become more cyber secure. it has also enabled me to increase the security of the networks I manage with better and more understanding of the need for online security.
This phase also helped me understand the different spheres of Cyber security and the different stakeholder aproaches towards maintaining a cybersecure internet.
I have also been involved in bloging about online security which I believe will develop more sensitisation.
Please list the names of organizations you are a member of, including hyperlinks for more information when possible.
