Slow start to a beautiful day. Listening to dradio.de and sipping Chicco d’oro coffee and reading my way thru awesome Twitter people and browsing thru Flickr. 2 laptops, 1 iPod Touch, 1 Blackberry, and 1 Canon digicam all within close distance.
Planning to head to the swimming pool later. Loading my iPod with podcasts. Lack of time will always be an outcome in a capitalist environment. Days like this are pure luxury.
Links to read:
Link 1: Yesterday I stumbled across this HBR blog post on the disciplined pursuit of less. Some interesting questions to think about…
- “What am I deeply passionate about?”
- “What taps my talent?”
- “What meets a significant need in the world?”
- “If I did not have this opportunity, how much would I be willing to sacrifice in order to obtain it?”
Link 2: A trend I have been following for years – the emerging new opportunities in Africa as a result of mobile and web technology – is now being recognized.
“Africa is a lively business opportunity which appeals to many entrepreneurs who are not from the continent itself. ” bit.ly/OQUQiL

Even in small markets like Malawi, software companies are emerging. Developers such as:
- http://www.p4studio.com/ and http://baobabhealth.org in Lilongwe
- http://www.b4csoftware.com/ in Blantyre
And Facebook only allows me to enter one cell phone, automatically removing the cell phone on my other Facebook account; apparently one person = one Facebook account = one cell phone number. I currently have 4 Facebook accounts. But on the upside, I may never need to spend energy on resolving this, cos Facebook may become irrelevant… n’est-ce pas? How one botched IPO can change the outlook of a company, is quite mind-boggling.
Music: My favourite band this summer is Boy. Love their sound.
Buon weekend. And please feel free to leave a comment.
