My brains is burning on How, when ,who, where and what?
I have a small answer for Who?: It is me, you and him/her all in Africa! We have the potential since we have very few challenges to keep us awake - only if we value what we naturally have.:-):-)
We should think out of the Box but We should acknowledge what we have in our Box. To begin with, we have equity: land is the biggest assert. Next is Talent ! We naturally have it all.
No one will tell you how to make ur household better than Theirs!
Lets control the Content which is rich of knowkedge...

Africa is a quarter the size of South America in terms of addressability. The most visible ccTLD in Africa is .za which is 0.3% of the web. The total international bandwidth for Africa is 1 Tbps. It was mentioned that Africa has less international bandwidth than Austria.
