This week, TechNova is featuring me and the (tech) contents of my bag in a blog post.
Do you know what the brown rectangles are? The mint-green dot? The goggles?
here to read the full post.
What a year!
I started a project on
virtual reality in the classroom with colleague Kabiru Seidu. I taught Social Theory and Written and Oral Communication.
I had my
PhD viva and graduated. Whew!
I brought my
readings and my kids to the blog which celebrated 10 years.
interviewed on a podcast and featured by Pulse in a video and wrote an article for a major Swiss newspaper (I am Swedish, not Swiss, so this I think is an achievement!)
I traveled to
Dakar, Cape Coast, Sweden (twice, writing from an amazing xmas get-together in the cold just now!), Ohio and Pennsylvania, and Washington DC.
The world experienced
Grand Bassam, Trump, Seinabo Sey, and Ghana its election.
Now I need to rest and come back in full force next year! See you in 2017!
This week I read:
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s feminist manifesto, this time on how to raise a feminist daughter. All of it was on point, personally, I especially found the hair section (10) useful having two daughters who get to hear their hair is “ katcha-katcha” if not braided.
Turkey Blocks Google Drive Drop Box, One drive and GitHub to stop email leaks. An example of governments blocking Internet sites in a trial of getting hold on control. (but it doesn’t work).
Virtual Reality in Africa. Former Ashesi student Jonathan Dotse of Nubian VR quoted. Did you know Bill Gates is also a blogger? Here is his latest (fab) post on
what political leadership can do to accelerate innovation. (Spoiler alert: Energy is his top issue)
This Swedish article I wish was available in English for all (ok, more folks) to read:
uite varying reactions to the choice of Bob Dylan for the Nobel Prize in Literature.
This week I watched this video, because, well it was everywhere:
6. I also calmed myself down with the following
Nigerian reactions on social media, presented by one of Nigeria’s biggest bloggers Linda Ikeji.
This post is part of my #KajsaHASundayReads series. Inspired by personal role models, Ory Okolloh Mwangi and Chris I want to share articles I read with my followers on a somehow regular basis. Blattman,
