Where Africa and Technology Collide!

Vote for the African Technology Manifesto!

White African needs your help. Since so many people have taken an interest in my paper A Technology Idea for Africa, I decided to try and see what would happen if it was put on an even bigger platform. ChangeThis is just such a website:

ChangeThis is creating a new kind of media. A form of media that uses existing tools (like PDFs, blogs and the web) to challenge the way ideas are created and spread. We’re on a mission to spread important ideas and change minds. Read more…

As some of you know, I started off my web career in marketing. I figured since I’m being self-promotional here, that I might as well go all the way and create a full viral marketing push. I’ll need 300 votes to be allowed to publish to ChangeThis, so give me a hand and vote if you think others should have a chance to read it. Tell your friends too!

Here are some banner ads, with the corresponding code underneath it, to place them on your blog or in an email:

Thanks!

NOTE: The African user-submitted news aggregator site (Muti) that I frequent just had a hilarious and somewhat misleading title for my manifesto submission at ChangeThis titled, “Digital freedom fighter about to rescue Africa from itself.” I’m not sure what to say about it really – it sounds so dramatic…

  1. You have my vote, ndugu!

  2. That’s awesome. I voted.

  3. Excellent move! I think ChangeThis is the right vehicle for your proposal. I receive their manifesto mailings which appear to have a large and diverse readership.

  4. Thanks for the support! Let your friends know so they can vote too. I have until April 20th, but who knows what will happen with the voting after the first week. It might just die off.

  5. You have my vote too.

  6. I have voted already! 🙂

  7. Sounds like a great idea. I voted for your manifesto AND am running your shameless promo (badge) over at my place so you can get even more votes. Does the African Technology Manifesto have a blog or newsletter so that we may keep track of the project?

    Thanks Bill, I appreciate it! I’m glad you posted here, since I hadn’t come across your blog before. Good stuff.

  8. Erik,

    Tonight you have 139 votes. Keep microbranding mate!

  9. hey nice blog and great ideas.

    Keep it up, u have some great entries there.

    Africa black or white will change for better, those that doubt better rethink now, it wasnt long when people used to walk all over China, now it seems everyone wants to learn some mandarine.
