With each passing day, the impact of the internet and social media in Nigeria becomes a lot more obvious. From freeing unlawfully detained citizens from the clutches of Security agents to rallying people around to donate blood after Monday’s dastardly bomb blast, social media is fast becoming a force to reckon with across many spheres [...]
I have been trying to wean myself from physical keyboards for a year or so now. Since my very first 3310, I’ve always had a primary phone with a keyboard with tactile feedback.

Professor Dora Akunyili’s appearance after a long period of sickness has turned out to be the most searched and talked about topic about people in the month of March in Nigeria on Google.

This is usually the post where we declare some too-good-to-be-true or ridiculous story which we have led you in by baiting the link with some choice words. Well, we’re too old for that. (We have actually never done so, and hopefully never will). Masked under the fun and games theme of April 1st, it is [...]
