The book's aim is to make you think again about Africa and how you see Africa, wherever in the world you are. Its purpose is to make you question your and our ideas about Africa. The book adds a technology voice to a global conversation, in which cultural, economic, political, institutional,intellectual and many other voices are also taking part, bringing about a richer image of modern-day Africa. The book is best understood as a journey. We meet and listen to technology and other pioneers, facilitators of change, sceptical experts, intellectual visionaries, cheetahs and hippos. We visit hot spots of technology and explore future successes and failures.
