speaking at Barcamp Africa

I had a wonderful opportunity to speak at Barcamp Africa held on the google campus on October 11th.

I spoke on the first panel and focused my talk on exploring political trends on the continent as well as sharing my experiences with Akili Dada.

I also led a second breakout session in the afternoon exploring strategies for women's empowerment on the continent.

It was an absolutely wonderful day with a lot of networking and learning including meeting one of my heroes, David Kobia of Ushahidi (what I think is one of the most innovating inventions/creations to come out of Africa)

Here are a couple of links about the day:

I have met Juliana of Ushahidi and interviewed a couple of its programmers....I agree with you, Ushahidi is one of the greatest ideas ever!

I'd like to put you in touch with a film company that is planning to do a feature length docu about Girl child education in Kenya. They have already shot in Suba district and i they will be coming back to Kenya sometime this year.

Let me know if you are interested.
