TED Africa I’m really excited to see a bunch of names of friends and contacts on the speaker list for TED Global in Arusha, Tanzania next year. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design, and is a very well known and respected conference that has been happening in the US since 1984. The TED blog has the full story.

It’s good to see that this is primarily African speakers, and that those who aren’t African by birth are real players in Africa. Emeka Okafor, one of the top African bloggers on technology through Timbuktu Chronicles, is the one to congratulate for this. I personally look forward to watching the videos from the event – they always do such a phenomenal job of coverage in this medium.

Psst, Emeka, throw me one of those extra invites you have and I’ll stop sending you those nasty emails. (joking) 🙂
