Today, I found an interesting articel about the ICT situation in africa. You can see – comparing to all other continents of the world – that there is a big necessity to enable more net affiliations in africa.

I also found this Video from Alex Gakuru: the first-ever FOSS video in Kenya! It is a result of an Open, voluntary collab among local Free and Open Source Software community of advocates, users, and developers with appreciated participation by Eunice Kariuki – senior Kenya ICT Board representative.

The African Bloggers Conference (Nairobi, Kenia)
At least I found out that there is the first African Bloggers Conference in Nairobi from August 16 – 18 in 2009 called Kelele! (Kelele means “Noise” in Kiswahili). People who believe that the internet can give voice back to african people will meet for the first time and make noise. I think it’s a great idea to use the principles of web2.0 conferences (everyone, everywhere) in africa and I look forward what will happen there.
