The Supreme Council of Information and Communication Technology (ictQATAR) has jumped into the blogosphere with the launch of its new blog, Digital Qatar, www.DigitalQatar.qa. Digital Qatar is a blog for technology enthusiasts and a place to explore the boundless potential of information and communication technology.
"Thanks to our numerous community events and outreach activities we know there is a large community of people interested in ICT and ICT-related issues here in Qatar. Digital Qatar will provide an online platform for genuine thought and conversation in Qatar around everything ICT," said Howaida Nadim, ictQATAR Communications Director. "We hope people will post comments, start debates and engage their friends, family and colleagues in the conversation."
ictQATAR officially launched Digital Qatar at its event, Mudawanat: All About Blogging, which took place on 12 December 2009. At the event, people in Qatar were encouraged to begin blogging, both personally and professionally. ictQATAR sees blogging as a way to increase the amount of Arabic e-content available and share Arab voices online on a range of issues.
The first postings on Digital Qatar address the basics of creating an effective blog, user-centered website design and developing effective web strategies. ictQATAR plans to post to the blog regularly and will also be inviting outside experts to share posts.
