Thanks to iHub Nairobi (@iHubNairobi) we get to know this interesting publication on the current situation & opportunities in Africa, with an interesting focus on ICts.

The book Futures of Technology in Africa is the result of a three year foresight project. It reveals insights into the next two decades of ICT, energy and infrastructure and how developments in these sectors are going to affect everything else. It contains scenarios providing a fascinating glimpse of how the opportunities and risks might play out. You will find advice on how businesses can take parts in the opportunities, as well as lessons that the West can learn from Africa. As a bonus, the book also contains one of the very few African science fiction stories, specially written for this publication. Whatever your interest in Africa, this book is sure to surprise you.

A lot of converted effort from all walks of life has seen a new air vibrant innovation in places like Kenya, South Africa and many other regions which were previously not known for anything constructive.

Like Cape Town, Nairobi is witnessing a huge technology upsurge – largely because of the popularity of ushahidi / iHub.

Afri-Tech kenya 2011 will see almost more than 50 pundits in the digital marketing area congregate in Nairobi (15 – 18th June) – http://www.afri-tech.com/.

Another mobile apps competition, Pivot25 is also organized on 14-15th June in Nairobi.
So, this is a great time for the technocrats of Africa to experience the current trends.
