The newest member of the TC family - The Conversation Africa - launched earlier in May. Now TC-Africa editor Caroline Southey has written this blog describing the thrill of launch, the anticipation of the early few weeks, and ambitions for the fourth edition in The Conversation global network.

We went live with the first edition of The Conversation Africa on the morning of May 7. Nothing can fully describe the thrill of the 60 minutes before and the 60 minutes after we posted our first stories on the website.

We thought you’d like to get behind the scenes and meet the new team, so read on. You can subscribe to the TC-Africa newsletter and follow them on Facebook and Twitter.

The Conversation now has editions in Australia, UK, US and Africa. All editions are locally funded by universities and foundations in those countries.
