I'm attending a panel at Blogher 2007 callled "Women across the World" and it's examining social media and blogging in respect to women journalists in foreign countries. The panel consists of four women from India, the Middle East, Kenya and Trinidad. Global Voices is sponsoring the event.
The media has recently done a good job at highlighting the poor attendance record of Kenyan MPs even during critical debates like the presentation of the budget. Most MPs are busy trying to figure out which party will be their ticket for 2007.
