We've updated the Africa tech hub map using your suggestions

Tim Kelly's picture

My recent blog "Tech hubs across Africa: Which will be the legacy-makers?" generated a long list and a wide range of comments, many suggesting tech hubs we hadn't noted on the map. As a result of your feedback, we've updated the list and created a new map.

Here are also two helpful new links that were sent my way as a result of this ongoing dialogue: Of course, since the technology landscape is always changing, the list will never be complete. We request your ongoing help to add value by making new comments. Thank you for being part of our global community.

Hi Tim, Great idea. Thank you for sharing. I have a couple of suggestions. Since this list will be a bit difficult to maintain can you move the information and map to a crowd-map tool like Ushahidi so it could be constantly refined, updated, verified (by users) and shared on social platforms? That way it will be even more useful for creating connection between the hubs and innovators. Can you also please share the list (excel or CSV) you maintain so any web designer or techy can also make an interactive map out of it?
