  • Thanks for the update

    Surely be looking at that

  • Whew, sure would be nice to get a scholarship to that conference – it’s not a cheap one. However, TED does usually have some of the best speakers and top minds. I’ve really got to get to a live one of these one day instead of just reading your blog and watching the videos.

    You asked who we think should speak? Here’s my list:
    - M, blogger from Thinker’s Room and a political activist who is DOING something.
    - Someone from a big technology company who does think/care about Africa. Maybe Google’s Sergey Brin?
    - Ethan Zuckerman seems an obvious choice.

    Of course, all mine have to do with technology – guess I can’t get out of that rut. :)
