Excellent clickable photo of Web2.0 start-ups based in Africa put up by a group Blog called Black Looks – highly recommended. As is the way when something like this gets widely blogged some of the sites may have been knocked off-line by the attention, but I’d expect them to be back up again by Monday :)
(picture will open in Flickr – where it *is* clickable)
Google have just bought Jaiku – so I think you can be fairly certain that micro-blogging (or lifestreaming) is going to continue it’s growth. Seems as good a time as any to try it out. A lot of the people who’s blogs I’m following seem to think it has value, particularly in a mobile context – so if you want to know what I’m twittering about, I’m s0apy.
Interesting article in the New York Times about social networking sites for the baby boomer generation. Lists a whole slieu of sites pitching at the over 40’s (gulp – that’s me!) which I’d never heard of. I’m not sure I’m that impressed with their titles though, Eons – Multiply –TeeBeeDee?
