see also the papers on telecentres at INET 1999 and 2000, and Bamako 2000. I
haven't got all the precise URLs but they are somewhere in this bibliography
from a paper I just completed.

Nyiira on Uganda looks at feedback from pilot rural telecentres in Buwama,
Nabweru and Nakaseke towns that indicate perceptions of local ownership and
long-term sustainability are crucial problems to overcome.

Ronel Smith looks at a recent telecentre project in Maputaland, northern
KwaZulu Natal and found that surrounding schools did not benefit from a
telecentre due to the long distances and lack of telephones.    also
interesting stuff on telecentres in Senegal....
