Notes from Kenya

Some tidbits I picked up during the few days I spent in Kenya…reminded me of how much I miss blogging from Nairobi…so many storos:

– Apparently Coke’s biggest competitor in Kenya is Safaricom – in the battle for disposable income Coke is losing – spend money on a soda or on buying credit? Guess […]

The Alchemist

This article cracked me up. I should have learned not to succumb to books that are way too popular after my underwhelming experience with the Da Vinci Code, but succumb to the Alchemist I did.

Session 1

– It’s here! In October 2005, I was privileged to be […]

WTF Story of the Week

My mantra for Africa lately, which I repeated at TED Global, is that after all has been said and said again, we need action and we need to take responsibility for our continent’s future…Shikwati says to the West “Stop the aid, please!” I say to the Africans, “Stop the whining and pointing fingers, please!.” Instead […]
