2010 is gone and 2011 is here. Which technologies will we be looking for as Kenyan techies? They are varied and might not be the same but majority of these stuff just will be the same.

Kenya was in a crisis in 2007/2008. Kenyan techies led by Ory Okolloh thought of an idea to bring all the crisis reports of the same together in a tech manner. The main reporters were not so much techies and so they needed the most basic way to do it. The most common way then and now still is basic sms in a cheap cellphone. The Ory Okolloh and team thought.
