Over the past week, we’ve found 84 stories of how ICT is changing 29+ African nations. A higher than usual number are about ICT activities in Ivory Coast. And, as usual, a large share are out of Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa.

Most are positive; the only negative stories are about VoIP banned in Comoros, fibre management issues in DR Congo, and the arrest of a Mauritanian blogger. Cautionary posts speak to online defamation in Malawi, the dilemma of social media over traditional relationships, and the danger of focusing solely on life’s necessities instead of tech and dire needs like healthcare.
