Africa IT hubs
In April 2011 I was in Zambia for the Random Hack of Kindness event (RHoK) organized by the World Bank in support of the Pilot Project for Climate Change and Resilience. The Hackaton was a bit of a struggle: the Internet connection was not really fast and not a lot of technologists came to the event. I was starting to think that there were not a lot of technologists in the country overall.
The *iHub_ today is Nairobi's Innovation Hub for the technology community, an open space for technologists, investors, tech companies and hackers in the area, and so much more. The iHub is basically a tech community facility for everyone, with a focus on young entrepreneurs, web and mobile phone programmers, designers and researchers. Today the iHub is the place where you want be if you are working on innnovation and technology in Africa.
