Here is the information I have on the BBS operating out of Chicago. The original article appeared in USENET. As it is two years old, the BBS may no longer be operating. Following this, I have appended other information which I have saved from USENET which you two may find interesting. Stanley

May I recommend a good place to post this article in addition to here. There is a bbs in Chicago called THE AFRICAN (312) 973-3551. It has been running for about seven months. The Sysop (Robert Ohues) is Nigerian. He has good ideas, but probably needs "involved" people to come on board with enthusiasm. He's trying to get a newsletter going, among other things.
======================================================================== Subject: Newsletter on African Technology From: email@example.com (Mawuli I. Tse) Date: 12 Nov 89 00:12:52 GMT - <15816@bloom-beacon.MIT.EDU> Organization: Massachusetts Institute of Technology
The African Technology Forum (ATF) is coming out with a new issue in December. In case you have never heard of it, the ATF is a publication established in 1988 with the aim of promoting the effective application of technology on the African continent. Our last two issues have been well received, and I expect the next one to be even better.
I invite you to contribute material to the newsletter. It could be from any of the following sources:
--An original paper dealing with technological development in Africa --An extract from a research project, thesis or publication that is of significance to African issues --Previously published material that you think would be of interest to other subscribers to the Forum. --Letters, questions, newsclips, anything.
Full credit will be given to both the original author and the person submitting the article.
If you have any questions, please send me a message. Anyone who is interested in international development and technology has a place at the African Technology Forum. Thanks for your interest.

If interested and have a short-wave radio you can catch the BBC radio program---Network Africa on 9600 khz from 0600 to 0700 hrs UTC (which is 0200 to 0300 hrs EDT).
This is a good program on African news and views. They also play african and other music. Some of the music they play is recorded on the streets by various reporters.
