Eritrea spurs insecurity in the Horn of Africa

Former rebel leader, now president, Isaias Afwerki has created one of the world's nastiest dictatorships
Lying flat in Mogadishu while bullets thudded into the wall behind which we were cowering, an American buddy and I were discussing what to do about the chaos that is Somalia...

Connectivity Malaise

Low, unreliable Internet connection frustrates users, businesses
A look inside Blue Broadband, Israel Endale’s Internet café, shows clients glued to monitors placed wall-to-wall. The owner, however, complains that unpredictable Internet connection is frustrating his customers and costing him money.

Comment:  Is this a growing pain brought by the fast expansion of service or simply...? What kind of expansion is ZTE and many of the experts involved in this 2 billion dollar worth project doing to have an issue with such low number of users? We hope this is not a case of milking the cow by creating artificial bandwidth bottleneck to demand more equipment purchase! Do not blame us for saying this, we have seen what ENRON did here in the USA!

Thought for Today

The freedom we are looking for is the freedom to be ourselves, to express ourselves. But if we look at our lives we will see that most of the time we do things just to please others ... The worst part is that most of us are not even aware that we are not free. by Don Miguel Ruiz.
