If you follow this blog you may have noticed the frequency of posts has not been so high in recent times. I have been focusing a lot of my writing on Afrinnovator.com one of my startups. Afrinnovator.com focuses on highlighting tech, innovation and startups in Africa. You will find a lot of information about what’s happening in Africa with social media, events, cool stuff, interviews with startup founders and other influencers in local communities all around Africa. We like to think of it as being a bit like Mashable.com but the content is African, after all, who else will tell our story if we don’t tell it ourselves?
