I have a question for techies in Africa. What would you recommend to someone setting up a website in Africa designed to generate considerable user-interaction and input? A bulletin board, a wiki, or some sort of real-time stream of information (like a Friendfeed or Twitter)? What types of technology are currently popular in Africa?
If you are going to be hosting a website with a primarily African customer base, would you host in Africa or would you host in Europe (and where in Europe?). The costs / bandwidth from African-based webhosters seems ridiculously small when compared to the European ones, but I'm wondering how much of a lag users would notice if it was EU-based.
