I’m about to embark on my first trip Silicon Valley (and the USA, for that matter).
Last week, my friend and mentor Vinny Lingham of Synthasite contacted me about Barcamp Africa. He reckoned it would be a fantastic opportunity to promote Skyrove’s vision of community owned internet and to meet some people who could help with suggestions, ideas, collaboration etc.
So here I am, sitting on the first of 3 planes on the way to San Francisco. (Cape Town -> Johannesburg -> London -> San Francisco).
I’ll try and put some updates and photos on this blog, and should be fairly active on twitter. You can follow me there on http://twitter.com/geekrebel
If you have any ideas or stories about African innovation you’d like me to help “get out there”, please leave a comment!
