It was like a dream come true…… the 6th Internet Governance Forum (IGF11) was held in my home town, Nairobi!
The relaxed space that is the United Nations Office at Nairobi (UNON) facilities, offered speakers and participants a serene environment for rather hurried discussions on access, development, freedoms and innovation at time-limited… Continue

Military history is the history of camouflage and… Continue

I would like to tell you a story.
Once upon a time, a very long time ago, when I was just a little girl and the internet hadn’t been invented yet, my friend Michael and I were fascinated by the idea of space. Space hadn’t really been invented yet either, so for us in our small country primary school it was a place where anything could be possible. This story begins such an unimaginably long time ago that it even pre-dates television. We listened to the wireless – it hadn’t evolved… Continue
