In June the Institute of Network Cultures hosted a conference. I wrote a report following the meeting. They have a reader (print/CD) which is available online. You may also request a free hard copy though the ones I received yesterday had no CD-ROM included. There is a wide variety of topics covered: info development, open source software in Brazil, urban issues in Bangalore, piracy, international remittances. The download is 17.5 Mb as a single file. Well worth the time, but the printed version is easier to read.
