Last view of London before flying out. The building in your view is The Shard near London Bridge. It is the tallest building in the EU.

I'm happy to share what we've been writing on at +FutureChallenges
 
Our Future Challenges Reader series continues. Today we've published the 3rd Reader: "Help Wanted".

“Help Wanted“ covers the topic of unemployment, a plague sickening many of the world’s largest economies. Our network of authors responds to our central question with ideas, perspectives and stories from France, Egypt, Hungary, the United States, Brazil, Costa Rica and India.

Namibia was the 38th country I visited since I started blogging and presenting on "positive stories from Africa". Thanks to the +eLearning Africa Team for making it possible. I really had a blast in #Windhoek

I don't think people change. I think they definitely mature. But I think the essence of what I am today is the same as when I was five years old. It's just maturity. I've become a healthier, fuller expression of that essence.

Introduction

A Ghanaian Social Blogger, Writer, IT Professional and a Digital Activist.  My work and passion focuses on a range of issues related to Entrepreneurship, African Ingenuity, Human Rights and Freedom of Expression, with special emphasis on the Sub-Saharan African region.

I’m personally very interested in other issues of gender, citizen journalism and social media.  As of April, 2010; I assumed the role of Regional Editor – Africa on Future Challenges Organization by the Bertelsmann Foundation in Gutersloh, Germany.

I’m an active author with Global Voices Online; where I aggregate & researches on feeds from citizen media from the Sub-Saharan Region. I’m also on the board of Ghana Blogging Group; (a vibrant community of bloggers with passion for Ghanaian contents).

I have been featured on and written for numerous publications, including The CS Monitor, NY Times and Future Challenges Organization.

I currently write for Global Voices Online voluntarily. A selection of my published writing can be found here.
