A cracked head no obstacle to social media

This page in:

Erik Hersman at the White African blog reports on a conference on social media currently being run by Plan International, an NGO that supports children in developing countries. Hersman explains the rationale behind the conference:

Tony and I were on our way out of Nairobi for a meeting by Plan International on how social media can be used for social change (SM4SC). They do a lot of work with youth all over Africa, so it makes sense that they’re trying to get a handle on how they can use the mobile phone and the web to connect better and have a greater impact with that demographic.

Unfortunately, Hersman managed to crack his head on a door frame just before leaving for the conference. He still made it to the conference though - social media must really be a big draw. I hope it heals quickly!
