I'm South African, currently living in Oxford, UK, where I have recently completed a doctorate in physics.
I'm working closely with some friends in Zambia to build up Open Source Zambia, an organisation to which aims to provide a focus for people using FOSS in Zambia. We would like to develop expertise in and use of free software in Zambia, and the major stumbling block we've encountered so far is the lack of interaction between existing users. There is plenty of expertise - major businesses using Linux servers, for example, as well as many schools and charities - but not much use of the open source development model, which I believe is the most significant lesson of the free software movement.
Please add links to Open Source Zambia on your own pages!
I have a few projects in initial stages; my involvement on this wiki includes:
I recently revamped the page on Breezy support for Rt2500 wireless chips, which are found in Belkin FD7000 and FD7010 cards (WifiDocs/RalinkRT2500).
I contributed to WifiDocs/Driver/Broadcom43xx
I am a huge fan of MoinMoin wikis, take a look at RobertSchumann
