The Origins of Good Ideas - WSJ.com - http://online.wsj.com/article...
The scientist Stuart Kauffman has a suggestive name for the set of all those first-order combinations: "the adjacent possible." The phrase captures both the limits and the creative potential of change and innovation. In the case of prebiotic chemistry, the adjacent possible defines all those molecular reactions that were directly achievable in the primordial soup. Sunflowers and mosquitoes and brains exist outside that circle of possibility. - Thad Kerosky

A tale of two countries – services and apps uptake in Kenya and Tanzania | balancingact-africa.com - http://www.balancingact-africa.com/news...
Although Dar es Salaam is increasingly the location of large, high-end private property developments, there is not the same energy and edginess that seems to drive Kenya in both good and bad directions. But there are almost certainly more Tanzanians of an entrepreneurial mindset than there were at the end of the socialist experiment under Nyerere. Also whereas urban Kenyans and their media are complaining vigorously about the speed and cost of their Internet, Tanzanians do not seem so bothered as perhaps the Internet has not yet reached critical mass either on mobile or laptop. - Thad Kerosky

Pambazuka - The revolution will not be funded - http://pambazuka.org/en...
Indeed in order for resources to be disbursed through African grant-makers in a manner that would support our progressive movements for change, our grant-makers themselves would need to be self-determined by: holding stocks and investments that would generate interest for grant-making while creating a large reserve for sustained social justice support; tapping into the philanthropic potential of Africa’s Diaspora and bourgeoisie, in particular targeting young Africans that are potentially divorced from the interests of the political elite having generated their wealth through sectors like the information, communication and technology (ICT) sector; - Thad Kerosky
