The new windows vista

Microsoft has unveiled its new vista to its customers. I heard bill gates saying that its built for the next generation of web. I think that means that it has tools that would be used in building web2.0 aplications. May be in place of the old fashioned frontpage, you will get an application that u could use in building a socialnetworking site or a video uploading site or any user generated content site.

If that is the case then i think i need me a windows vista.

Web 2.0 in Africa

This is not my first post on the development of web2.0 in Africa. Well in the other post I wrote that i didnt believe Africa is ready for web2.o and wrote my reasons, well I have found more reasons. To enjoy the best of web2.0 and what it has to offer, you need a fast internet connection or a broadband in other to stream all the videos and pics you can find on youtube, myspace, flickr and more. Well we Africans know that a fast internet connection is very rare on the continent and even as far as I am concerned, the thing is even getting worse and slower in places like Nigeria.

So i hope now You see why in the first place I said Africa is not yet going to embrace web2.0 just like europe and America.

Hillary Clinton

This blog is mainly about africa, music and culture. And its not a political blog. But today's post falls into the political category. The post is about Hillary Clinton and her bid for the presidency of the United States. I feel if she wins the democratic primaries, then she has a great chance of becoming the next president of the United states.

Is Africa ready for web 2.0?

With the birth of so many african social networks and other user generated content sites, One would ask if Africa is now embracing web 2.o just like europe and America.
We have by far a lesser number of internet users in Africa than in europe and America, I have seen some social networking sites in Africa with over 6 thousand members. you cant compare this with the tens of millions of people that use social networking sites in Europe and America.
may be web 2.0 shouldnt be introduced to Africa through social networking because I dont even think many Africans have the time and money to sit in front of a computer with an internet connection and spend hours browsing profiles, reading blogs and viewing pictures and videos posted by other africans.

Stopping online scams

Nigeria has made itself a name in the global online fraud market or better known as 419 in the country. Now the country is putting up and fighting against those scammers. Now the agency in charge of stopping online fraud and other financial crimes in the country, the EFCC has banned all night browsing in internet cafes in the country.
The agency believes that the scammers take advantage of the all night internet surfing which costs them a little over a dollar to launch there fraudulent campaigns over the internet, when it is working ours in other parts of the world especially the USA.
I also believe that this is a good move by the government in curbing this menace, but they need to do more and focus on catching the scammers and bringing them to justice. I know with a little investment into some internet tracking tools, the scammers would never feel safe again and they would be out of work. I have a lot of concepts on how to easily develop these tools.
I also have a blog where I write on tips how to avoid online scam. http://avoidscam.blogspot.com
