MindBullet: Nigeria Leads the African Revolution (16 December 2019)

If you, like I, have an unfortunately South African-centric view of certain things... read this article as: How Nigeria Won and Left South Africa In Its Dust. I'm getting the feeling more and more that competition in both technology, business, development and infrastructure is hotting up in Africa. That's a good thing, because South Africa can ill afford to rest on its laurels. MindBullets are a fantastic series of articles from the FutureWorld group. Essentially they're news broadcasts from the future, showing us examples of just how quickly our world is changing, and where it might take us. Explore further MindBullets or read more about the FutureWorld Group (of which Andy Hadfield is a member).
