Here's a snapshot of some of what +Google Africa is doing in the developer community.
 
+Google Developers meets with +Chukwuemeka Afigbo, a Program Manager with Google, to talk about the great projects going on to spread technology in Sub Saharan Africa. Hear some great stories about how content that is traditionally online is distributed offline, and how people have succeeded with it! #CoffeeWithAGoogler https://goo.gl/JyFuw2

How passing the plate becomes a 'Sunday morning stickup'.
Churches use guilt and guile to prey on gullible givers during the offering every Sunday. This is how the "Sunday morning stickup" works.

Great talk from a great guy, thanks for sharing.

I do have one nitpick: "dialects".... Noooooo! Here's a tip, Deke:  "dialect" doesn't make sense unless you are implying "dialect of some language". Otherwise the word you are looking for is "language".

Spot on. I think being in Africa for 10 years has made me unaware of this probably growing user base.

Just a few comments I've seen so far, regarding this remarkable video where the relatives of the Charleston church shooting victims address Dylann Roof and offer their forgiveness:

"I am a non-Christian, and I must say: This is a remarkable advertisement for Christianity."

"Seeing the loved ones of the victims show grace and offer forgiveness … yet again, the heart of Christ shines through the darkest night."

+John Dominy I almost didn't see your reply, since you hadn't tagged me. Anyhow, violence is violence, no amount of taking out of context can make a quote like "wipe them all out" mean something warm and bubbly. In any case, this isn't my overall point. I'm sure most christians don't act upon some obscure line in the bible. Gandhi legitimizes not following Christ? What does that even mean? Gandhi's message is that Jesus (and the bible) is a force for good, but this doesn't necessarily apply to his followers. I'm not using this against Christianity, rather it's an evidence-based conclusion. One of the 10 commandments is "thy shall not kill". So why is it that the countries with the most homicide are 99% Christian? Those folks must just not be reading the bible in the correct context, huh? * sarcasm*

Kenyan landlord in San Francisco has become an "eviction expert" in pursuit of the almighty dollar at the expense of longtime tenants.
 
A Kenyan, Anne Kihagi, owns real estate, multiple buildings, in San Francisco worth over $20M.. Which is impressive, what's disappointing is how she's treating the tenants..
San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera says those are the practices employed by a local property owner who has “waged a war of harassment, intimidation and retaliation” to illegally chase out longtime tenants in San Francisco apartment buildings. In the court documents, Herrera charges that Anna Kihagi, who manages and partially owns nine properties in the city, has employed “strong-arm and unlawful tactics” to displace tenants in rent-cont...

Introduction
"I used to think that my joy and God's glory were completely unrelated. I lived for God's glory and not my own pleasure. I praise my Father of grace and mercy for showing me that the two are not at odds, but are one and the same, standing and falling together: that me seeking God's glory is what it means to seek my highest joy. When one is missing, so is the other. God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him. Oh, if only we could fully absorb the implications of this truth! I guess that is what I will spend the rest of my life trying to do. Thanks John Piper. Thank You Father."
