InepdShirley Shane left a few hours ago. I will join him on Friday in Niger. We will fly to Niamey and on Saturday to Zinder. 5:39 PM 9-Mar-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Then we will travel to villages around Tanout doing an assessment. Just a short initial assessment. 5:41 PM 9-Mar-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley I miss '@inepdShane already and can't wait to see him in a few days. 5:42 PM 9-Mar-10
Solar Sister
solarafrica  .'@cynan_sez You just gave me a brilliant idea: we need microcredit-derivatives markets for developing countries. '@inepdKelvin will love this 8:30 AM 10-Mar-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley I know it's late are you still up. 7:23 PM 10-Mar-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane Yes Shane I'm glad you tweeted I was worried about you. I tried to called the office in Niamey a few times but you were out. 7:24 PM 10-Mar-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley I was running around all over Niamey today making arrangements for the explo. The change in weather is a bit tough. Low 40s 7:27 PM 10-Mar-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane Have you been able to get all the permits and find staff. 7:28 PM 10-Mar-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley The Country Director and staff did a lot of work before I arrived and the logistics coordinator has been great. 7:29 PM 10-Mar-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley The only problem is vehicles. We only have really one reliable vehicle up country for the explo. 7:30 PM 10-Mar-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane  @InepdShirley It also looks like '@InepdMercedes is come to the same location with a celebrity. 7:31 PM 10-Mar-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane  @InepdShirley So I might have to leave a day early to if I can borrow or hire a vehicle that is suitable for '@InepdMercedes. 7:32 PM 10-Mar-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane The celebrity visit is a big deal in the office. I have never heard of Michael Tomasky. He is coming to the office tomorrow. 7:36 PM 10-Mar-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane I hope they don't get in the way too much. We are on pretty tight schedule to get the assessment done in time. 7:38 PM 10-Mar-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley It will work out fine. We always manage to make it through some how. 7:42 PM 10-Mar-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane Do you remember our explo in Afar in Ethiopia and we got completely lost. 7:53 PM 10-Mar-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley Our Thuraya broke down and we didn't know our coordinates anymore. 7:54 PM 10-Mar-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane We just keep on the with the mission and assessed the wrong area. Then we followed up with a vaccination measles campaign. 7:56 PM 10-Mar-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley We only found out a few months later that we vaccinated the wrong area. That had been done 8 months before. 7:57 PM 10-Mar-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane You were so stubborn, you insisted you didn't need an interpreter since you had spent 3 months there in 2002. 7:58 PM 10-Mar-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley I was stubborn then. I thought I was something special. The vac camapign wasn't really wasterd, the 1st one had low coverage. 8:00 PM 10-Mar-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane We didn't get in too much trouble from the Country Director. 8:02 PM 10-Mar-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley No we were lucky, then we went on holidays to Asmara after the mission. Just watched TV for a week lying in bed mostly. 8:04 PM 10-Mar-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane I think it was the best holiday I had. We talked so much about everything, changing the world and that we had to do more. 8:05 PM 10-Mar-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley We were so clear then on what we should do with our lives. 8:06 PM 10-Mar-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane We move so far away from what we were back them in Asmara by following the teachings of de Waal. 8:07 PM 10-Mar-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley I agree. I feel embarrassed by what we did and thought. It was if we lost our purity. We were foolish and arrogant. 8:10 PM 10-Mar-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane I feel that this explo mission is making amends for that dark period of de Waalanism in our lives. 8:11 PM 10-Mar-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley We better both get some sleep. I will call you in the morning from the guest house. 8:12 PM 10-Mar-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley I thought I would leave you with a song: http://bit.ly/ey0sQ I love you so much. You are my life. 8:14 PM 10-Mar-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane That is beautiful. I love you more and more each day. Talk to you tomorrow. 8:15 PM 10-Mar-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin The buy back of Inepd Derivatives is going well. We have to dip into our current account and some reserves. 8:21 PM 10-Mar-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin We have all our Time Poor Donor Assets in play now. We are setting up a large sell next week with the expected media coverage we will get. 8:23 PM 10-Mar-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin On Howard and the LSE MBA interns projections we will be able to cover our DFID debt and our program expansion for the next six months. 8:24 PM 10-Mar-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin In total we have around 16 million pounds expected to come in. Such an amazing turnaround in our finances in few weeks. 8:25 PM 10-Mar-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin I had some opposition from the finance department on Tuesday in our management meeting on the buy back. 8:26 PM 10-Mar-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin I'm confident I have made the right decision for Inepd's future. Opportunities like this come only once in a lifetime. 8:27 PM 10-Mar-10

Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Just about to board my flight to Niamey, Niger in a little while with Gema my PA and Michael Tomasky. 5:45 PM 12-Mar-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Michael had a great briefing today. Fortunately most program staff were traveling this week setting up new Forward Accountability programs. 5:47 PM 12-Mar-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Most of the time Michael spent with the Marketing and Communications department and it was obvious he was more comfortable in our company. 5:49 PM 12-Mar-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes I will be traveling again tomorrow, so won't be tweeting much. Please follow me all Sunday for my field visit to visit refugee type people. 5:50 PM 12-Mar-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes We're promoting our Inepditude Campaign (Inepd Campaigns with Attitude) "Forgotten Conflicts , Where are They Now!" Join us 10am GMT Sunday 5:54 PM 12-Mar-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Then on Tuesday Night. Join us from 8PM, GMT in Amsterdam for the Grand Final of the Humanitarian Couple of the Year: http://bit.ly/9UdXml 5:56 PM 12-Mar-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin Bit of a difficult day with our Board of Directors. A complaint from finance was made against our Inepd Futures buy back strategy. 6:04 PM 12-Mar-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin I suspect that Gary from Accounts was behind the complaint. He was never happy with using Time Poor Donor Asset derivatives. 6:05 PM 12-Mar-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin Then he got wind of the Inepd Futures buy back strategy earlier this week. I guess Howard and the LSE MBA Interns couldn't keep it quiet. 6:06 PM 12-Mar-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin Today I had a very tense meeting with the BOD but in the end was able to reassure them that Howard and his team strategy was sound. 6:08 PM 12-Mar-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin They were particularly happy at projections that next week we would likely cover the DFID debt. Particularly important for our brand image. 6:12 PM 12-Mar-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin I believe in the scheme so much that I would happily buy Inepd Time Poor Asset Bequest Futures myself! 6:14 PM 12-Mar-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin  Just remembered '@InepdMercedes asked me to promote her field visit to Niger 10am Sunday GMT. 6:16 PM 12-Mar-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin Her visit is to promote our Inepditude Campaign (Inepd Campaigns with Attitude) "Forgotten Conflicts , Where are They Now!". 6:17 PM 12-Mar-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin Lastly please join us on Tuesday night 8pm GMT for the Grand Final of the Humanitarian Couple of the Year : http://bit.ly/9UdXml 6:20 PM 12-Mar-10
Trevor
Gotliepsen  @InepdKelvin Your strategy is extremely risky. You should diversify your investments. You just have to much invested in Inepd Futures!
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @Gotliepsen Howard and his team have left for week to have a well earned break. Even if I wanted to I couldn't reverse our Inepd Investments 6:32 PM 12-Mar-10
Trevor
Gotliepsen  @InepdKelvin It is of the utmost urgency once futures trading starts on Monday you diversify out of Inepd Futures.
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @Gotliepsen That is exactly our plan, to sell high Monday!!! 6:35 PM 12-Mar-10
