A few great quotes from a piece on technology, Kenyan women and geek culture that all “first world” western people should read in full for its implications on their society: Techies you meet [in Kenya] aren’t trying to come up with the next Facebook or another app to share your photos. They’re solving local problems with, among other things, locally developed apps that: allow farmers to check crop prices with text messaging, skipping the middleman bring math and reading help by cellphone to village schools.
