    Catching up on a few updates at once here, you can read about Day 2 of our trip here. It’s 6am in Lusaka, Zambia as I write this. The last two days have been a blur as we covered over 1,700 kilometers from Dodoma to Lusaka in what can only be considered as marathon sessions from sunup to just after sundown. Fortunately, both Tanzania and Zambia have some of the best roads we’ve seen, and the motorcycles and car all behaved well with only one slow puncture the whole way. We took small breaks every 100-200km in order to rest and move around a bit, but we’re still quite sore and ready for…

His album, ‘The Beautiful Side of Misery’ is very popular and is quickly establishing him as one of the talented icons in African hip hop circles. Chosan Jamati: The Beautiful Side of Misery is a testimony of your journey to where you are today. What track speaks the most about your experience?

Inmarsat gave us this test device, a small unit, made for global travelers, so we could test out what worked and give them feedback on their tools.

    Perhaps one of the longest projects to come to fruition for me has been Gearbox. Over three years ago, a couple of us started talking about the need for a makerspace in Nairobi, which turned up a notch to something more like a rapid protoyping and light manufacturing facility. We see Gearbox as the on-ramp for more industrial manufacturing to happen in Kenya. We were thinking of two types of users. First, somewhere that the rapidly growing community around robotics and electronics at the iHub could use. Second, something that was a step beyond a the FabLab at the University of Nairobi, so…

At its heart, Sendy is about bringing the vast and growing motorcycle courier and delivery network in Africa into the digital and networked world.

    From Qamp: Plastics constitute a significant portion of the Agbogbloshie waste stream, moving through stages of collection, sorting (by type and colour), cleaning, shredding and even in some cases molding into pellets. (See Plastics blog post). With at least 7 micro-factories by our count, Agbogbloshie is a key part of the plastic recycling industry in Ghana, and integrally interconnected with both local and global production cycles. To date, the failure of Agbogbloshie’s industrial ecosystem to add value to plastic material recycled on-site is a lost opportunity for local manufacturing.

    One of the first things I noticed about Sao Paulo was the graffiti. It’s everywhere, and it’s stylistically very striking – angular, highly stylized letters on walls, buildings, overpasses. It’s clear that it’s writing, not just glyphs, yet it’s difficult to parse the characters. When I try to decipher it, I feel as lost as I do trying to understand spoken Portuguese: it’s clear someone is communicating with me, and while I’m on the verge of understanding, I clearly don’t understand. It took less than 15 seconds with Google to learn that…

    Philosopher Helen Nissenbaum is one of the leading thinkers about the ethical issues we face in digital spaces. Her work on privacy as “contextual integrity” is one of the most tools for understanding why some online actions taken by companies and individuals feel deeply transgressive while others seem normal – we expect online systems to respect norms of privacy appropriate for the context we are interacting in, and we are often surprised and dismayed when those norms are violated. At least as fascinating, for me at least, Nissenbaum doesn’t just write books and…

    Entrepreneurs who don’t understand basic accounting concepts are setting themselves up for unnecessary stress and failure, says Peter Frampton of Color Accounting International; but, he adds, the good news is that everyone can learn the basic skills they need. “Business owners often tell us they’re slightly intimidated when meeting their accountants,” says Frampton. “They end up saying nothing more than ‘tell me where to sign’ so they can get out as quickly as possible. But with just one day’s training, entrepreneurs can improve their accounting skills to the point where that…

In consultation with brands I am asked weekly what this new legislation will mean for marketers and more specifically, for marketers in social media channels. So what is POPI exactly? In 2009 the South African government first tabled the Protection of Personal Information (POPI) bill in Parliament.

Cerebra’s offices have a very open plan design to start with and Craig and I deliberately resisted the temptation of closed off offices (more about that here). I had, without much intention, occupied a desk in the far corner of the office behind the kitchen that gave me a good view of goings on until I was unceremoniously relegated from that spot to make way for finance staff who work closely with Craig. No biggie, right? Instead of simply moving into another desk on a permanent basis I decided to occupy open desks as…

Or financial services businesses whose own employees bank with competitors. At Cerebra we…

    Pierre Englebert in the NYTimes: The larger issue in Burkina Faso, as elsewhere in Africa, is that formally democratic rules can easily be applied to perpetuate the authoritarian domination of a ruling clique. People might vote and parliament might convene, follow procedure and pass laws, but it is a largely hidden network of patronage alliances and security agencies that actually rules. This system excludes large segments of society from the benefits of genuine representation and produces vast inequalities mediated though access to state resources and offices. It breeds grievances,…

    This morning we walked into our office/classroom to realize we had no running water. The pipes had be stolen from the outside of the building. Pipe and cable theft is unfortunately common. We reviewed our video feed from outside the door and saw the guy, clearly dodging the camera. Thankfully nothing else was stolen and we can see from the footage there was no attempt to break into our office. We breathed a sigh of relief when watching it this morning. We want to take a moment and thank all of you who gave generously to help us recover from our devastating break in last year. You gave enough…

We know we are sending them into a very competitive market and they are defying the deck that was initially stacked against them. Its one of the many little adjustments we…

    Meet Alain. He is Congolese and married to a South African. He now calls South Africa home. When we first met Alain, we almost dismissed his application because he was a bit older than our original criteria. Sometimes you have to make exceptions.

Father of two girls. He says, “these skills are needed in my community”. He walks with an authority that is looking at the bigger picture of…
