“The Bright Continent”

Friend of Dispatch Dayo Olopade sits down with CNN’s Market Place Africa to discuss some of the ideas around her forthcoming book, “The Bright Continent.”

I’m looking forward to reading her book!

There’s also a correlation to her thesis, which is that technologies (particularly mobile technologies) that are being developed for use in the developing world have potential to really make a difference in rich countries as well. Check out the winners of this contest, for example.
