One of the biggest treats at CTCNet was being reminded what a big, open heart Karin Delgadillo has. Karin and I worked together years ago at APC, often doing good work together, sometimes sparring … but always finding a reason to laugh and smile (where is the burrBON?).
Talking with Karin in Cleveland reminded me that, even though we often come at things from a different angle, we share values in common – a deep belief in networks, a commitment to building on what has come before, a willingness to learn as much from failure as from success. These are things that matter, alot.
Since leaving APC, Karin has done amazing work with Chasquinet and Somos@Telecentros in Ecuador. She really has become a leader in the telecentre arena. Hopefully, reconnecting will give us a chance to work together again in the name of telecentres everywhere. As Karin says often: “Only one is nothing. Together we are everything.”
