On BRCK, Ushahidi and TED. Thank you all!

The last couple of weeks have been intense. Preparing for a TED talk is not easy, but with June Cohen, Kellie Stoetzel and Roxanne, I was better prepared and more confident than If I had not rehearsed with them. We had some moments where electricity would go out on my side in Nairobi and I would wish I had a BRCK with me. This is just a brief note to thank them for helping me, especially June for her encouragement, feedback and the invitation to speak.

There are others i did not mention in the talk, including Ory Okolloh,The Ushahidi Board, Reg Orton, Philip Walton, Jon Shuler, Mark Kamau and of course my family. I would be remiss if I did not correct that here at the very least. It is not with any ill intent that I did not include you in the talk, you all have my thanks and appreciation. I will be looking through the many comments on TED.com and also responding to feedback I’ve received directly from friends and colleagues in the tech space.

It is a long journey we are on, and I am especially happy to be part of the arc of technology in Africa. Ultimately, the hope is that we can make more, fix things and help each other. Onward.

  1. Good morning,

    I just watched your TED talk and I am very impressed. Thank you for the great work. To the best of my ability I will share and spread the word about you and your work in Rwanda. I will be commenting more after I have discovered more about USHAIDI.

    Have a blessed day
