It’s got a lot less product promotion and self-celebration than many conferences on innovation, and more personal stories, which is why I always enjoy attending. So I thought I’d share a personal story that I’m still digesting and the questions it raises for me. If it reads a little differently from most of my writing, the context helps explain why. About a month ago, I wrote an article about a simple idea. I asked whether…

    Michael Brown was fatally shot by police officer Darren Wilson on Saturday August 9, 2014. After his body lay in the hot street for four hours, Ferguson residents took to the streets to protest his killing. Brown’s death, the ensuing protest and the militarized police response opened a debate about race, justice and policing in America that continues today. I heard about Michael Brown’s death for the first time on the evening of the 9th, through Twitter. Sarah Kendzior, a St. Louis-based journalist, was retweeting accounts of the protest, and other Twitter friends who write about…

Accounts differ as to the events that preceded the shooting. The St. Louis County Police Department has said that Brown and another man struggled with an officer and pushed him back into his squad car, then attempted to seize the officer’s gun; a witness says that a police officer told Brown to walk on the sidewalk instead of the street, grabbed Brown after he exchanged words with the officer and shot the young man,…

While I remain convinced that we need more biographies of teams, of successful collaborations (an idea that Nathan Matias furthers in his post today on acknowledgement and gratitude), I do have a dark secret to admit: I periodically dream about becoming a biographer. This isn’t because I believe in the biography as a form. It’s because there are people I find so fascinating, I’d enjoy…

    There is no doubt that valuing a property has many reasons for it. The first and foremost reason is to help buyers and sellers to get smoothly into the process of property ownership transfers. It would be virtually impossible to go through this process without having property valuation done. Additionally, whenever there is a need to find out the market value of properties or other movable and immovable assets, property valuation becomes of paramount interest. Whenever there is a need to arrive at compensation of properties that are taken over by government authorities, there is no doubt that…

    Buying and selling a home is not the same as buying other movable and immovable properties. It is much more complicated and the number of procedures and formalities to be gone through are quite a few in numbers. Only when all these formalities are completed to the satisfaction of the authorities will it be possible to transfer the ownership from the seller to the buyer. Hence it is very important to hire the right property valuer. While the most important role of a property valuer is to help find out the fair market value of the property in question, he or she does perform a lot of other…

    On a recent trip to Ghana, I spent a good amount of time traversing Accra, and consequently getting stuck in traffic. Ghana is not unlike many other African and foreign cities. It boasts a growing urban population, engaged middle class, and business growth. Add to that poor urban planning and you get horrendous daily traffic. At this point Ghanaians have accepted that traffic delays are a way of life and have adjusted accordingly.

    There’s an ongoing debate going on right now spawned by recent news that Facebook’s bid to buy a drone manufacturer has implications for the company’s goal of “connecting Africa”. Whether Facebook actually intends to pursue that goal or it’s just a ploy to keep the company’s investors happy, the idea that Africa’s future could be filled with the buzzing of drones has sparked a heated debate. 2 sides to the debate On one side are those who champion the idea. On the other hand detractors criticize the initiative as a dumb, libertarian fantasy I…
  • IBM Chief Research Scientist on Tech as enabler for Africanized solutions

    5 Mar 2014 | 8:59 am
    Last year I met IBM research scientist Uyi Stewart at a Africa business and innovation conference at the NYU. After hearing him talk on a panel and a few short conversations I could tell that he was a man on a mission. At the time we connected Uyi was finalizing plans to leave his position in the USA for a role in Kenya as the Chief Scientist at IBM Research Lab – Africa. Since launching in November of 2013, the research lab has hit the ground running with a few powerful projects, most notably a project to reduce Kenyan traffic congestion using mobile phone data.

  • Business success in Africa is all about relationships

    Carlo Regueiras, Africa Sales Manager at Altech ISIS explains: Despite the fact that doing business in Africa has changed significantly over the past few years with the continent’s business environment maturing, there are still many continent- and country-specific adaptations that are required for a company to be successful. The only way to achieve an effective business presence in an African country is through local knowledge.”While many companies profess to have this local knowledge, few have an established network of local partners that allows them to overcome the challenges that even…

    1 Oct 2014 | 3:18 pm
    Joi Ito writes: image courtesy of Joi ItoThe kind of scholars we are looking for at the Media Lab are people who don't fit in any existing discipline either because they are between—or simply beyond—disciplines. I often say that if you can do what you want to do in any other lab or department, you should go do it there. Only come to the Media Lab if there is nowhere else where you could do what you want to do. We are the home of the misfits–the antidisciplinarians. More here

  • Is “the Church” becoming a problem?

    Kagure Mugo writing in This Is Africa: image courtesy of This Is AfricaIslamic extremism gets a lot of coverage, but much of what many Christians accept as normal because their pastor says it is so looks very much like religious extremism, too. Time to rethink this new style Christianity? ‘May the spirit fill you.’These are the words that are often uttered before the pastor tries to push some poor congregant to the floor to show she is filled with the spirit. In this scenario the believer will, more often than not, hit the dirt in their Sunday best. This is a good image of how some of the…

    ​En tant qu’économiste, spécialisé dans le secteur de l’éducation à la Banque mondiale, je passe souvent en revue  de nombreuses stratégies pays ou sectorielles dissertant sur la meilleure façon de développer l’Afrique et d’y atteindre une croissance économique élevée.   Et à chaque fois je me demande: mais qui le fera ? Qui apportera de la valeur ajoutée aux exportations africaines ? Qui construira ? Qui inventera ? Qui soignera ? La réponse est évidente : ce sont les jeunes fraîchement diplômés des universités africaines et des instituts de formation.
  • Who will add value in Africa? Who will cure? Who will build?

    Andreas Blom
    29 Sep 2014 | 12:49 pm
    ​From my seat as an Education economist at the World Bank, I go through a number of strategies from countries and sectors in Africa outlining how best to achieve economic growth and development. I am repeatedly struck by a key question: Who will do it? Who will add value to African exports? Who will build? Who will invent? Who will cure? The answer is, of course, that graduates from African universities and training institutions should do it. But the problem is one of numbers and quality—there are simply not enough graduates in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), and…
  • Science, Technology and Innovation in Agriculture is Pivotal for Africa’s Overdue Transformation

    John Kofi Agyekum Kufuor
    24 Sep 2014 | 7:56 am
    The persistence of poverty and food insecurity on the African continent is a major developmental challenge, both for Africans and the international development community.    History shows that investments in agriculture can be a catalytic force in the fight against hunger, poverty and malnutrition and a well-performing farm economy can be an instrument for achieving sustained structural economic transformation. Agricultural growth was the precursor to industrial growth in Europe and, more recently through the Green Revolution, in large parts of Asia and Latin America.  The Green Revolution…
  • Expanding Africa’s Digital Frontier: Farmers Show the Way

    Aparajita Goyal
    18 Sep 2014 | 8:53 pm
    Agricultural transformation is a priority for Africa. Across the continent, the significant information needs of farmers—accurate local weather forecasts, relevant advice on agricultural practices and input use, real time price information and market logistics—remain largely unmet. To the extent that rural regions are typically sparsely populated with limited infrastructure and dispersed markets, the use of innovative information and communication technologies (ICTs) overcome some of these information asymmetries and connect farmers to opportunities that weren't necessarily available to…
  • When Good Is Not Good Enough For 40 Million Tanzanians

    Jacques Morisset
    11 Sep 2014 | 8:20 pm
    Tanzania has undoubtedly performed well over the past decade, with growth that has averaged approximately 7% per year, thanks to the emergence of a few strategic areas such as communication, finance, construction, and transport. However, this remarkable performance may not be enough to provide a sufficient number of decent or productive jobs to a fast-growing population that will double in the next 15 years. With a current workforce of about 20 million workers and an unemployment rate of only 2%, the challenge for Tanzanians clearly does not lie with securing a job. Rather, it is to secure a…
