Dear Tracey,

I will be also in the Vancouver meeting on the 23th o february. I can 
explain more in detail how the community base telecentre members of 
somos en telecentre network are using strategically the telecentres to 
attend community  needs and demands and how the map their services. In 
fact you can see more information in english on 
www.tele-centros.org/tcparaque. Click English version. We also have a 
set of stories and practices in order to share tools and resources among 
the telecentres members of the network.

If you want to talk I am more than happy to support you.
