Computer for all Nigerians Initiative. Sound promising.

Korogocho (slum in Nairobi area) goes online. Even more interesting (and relevant for residents of Korogocho) is the launch of Koch FM, a community radio station. Wouldn’t it be great if we could get a collabo going between KBW and such initiatives e.g. maybe helping them reach a wider/international audience via podcast. Now can Gukira launch his ‘zines please :-)

– Some interesting commentary on the use of expat consultants on donor projects.

– Ken Lay is alive?

– This blog post reminded me of my experience growing up when the type of news material available at home was a good indicator of the state of the household finances e.g. both standard and nation everyday and not just weekends, plus Weekly review and Gitobu’s publication = things are good; one paper except on weekends and the weekly review = things are kinda when-is-the-end-of-month going to get here tight; one paper every day = things are really thick. My dad was a news junkie so one gazeti was as bad as it got (I was/am also a news junkie whose day was/is not complete without the newspaper…in fact I think sometimes he bought the paper just for me even though he could have managed without the paper just so I didn’t feel deprived).

    Newspaper measure is good, but there are ways around it. I HAVE to read at least two paper s a day, but buy maybe only 4 or 5 a week, depending on their content. This is because I have acces to them in office, at library, on internet or often find that there’s nothing worth buying in them, given the cost! There’s also a “buy 1-get 1 free” at most vendors, where if you buy the nation, you can browse the standard there for free (or vice versa)

  • What’s up i am kavin, its my first time to commenting anywhere, when i read this post i thought i could also create comment due to this brilliant piece of writing.

  • Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any helpful hints for rookie blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.
