Where Africa and Technology Collide!

My (short) TED Talk on Ushahidi

I was fortunate enough to be at TED this year as a Fellow. While there, I did a short TED University talk on the roots of Ushahidi, where it’s going and a new initiative called Swift River. Needless to say, it was only 4 minutes, so I couldn’t get all the information that I wanted to in there. If you would like to know more about Swift, take a look at this video where Chris and Kaushal talk about it in more detail.

Currently we’re seeing this at work in India, where a group of people have come together to deploy Ushahidi and Swift River to gather information from normal people about the elections.


  1. I was talking to a friend about aggregating podcasts and decided to hit TED… lo and behold, there’s this kid I grew up with in Africa. Very cool, keep up the good work.

  2. @David – I know, rather strange isn’t it? 🙂 I just realized I hadn’t been to your blog in a while and, after reading the last two posts I’m reminded to try to write better. I’m always drawn into your posts/stories, even if I don’t know much about Chess…
