“Pulse Watasema” Trends on Twitter

In the days gone by, any form of libel by a media personality would see the said persons go to court to seek legal redress. And as much as this is still the same in most instances, we are seeing and will continue a more public, more potent, and ultimately a more devastating recourse by […]

Bounce Rates and Stunning Women

If there is anything that is hardcoded into a man, it is appreciation of a good looking woman. There is no man I have seen who has not let his eyes wander at the sight of a stunning beauty. Different things draw us to them. It may be their curvy shapes, beautiful faces, seductive eyes, […]

The Democracy of Social Media

For a long while, the basis on which someone was tagged an authority in a given field was largely dictated by the mainstream media.

I am […]

At the 2nd Tandaa Symposium a fortnight ago, Jim Chuchu from Just A Band rose to speak on “Viral Campaigns” and because of the Makmende phenomenon, he had the ear of everybody present. His presentation was interesting and one of the things that stood out for me was that immediately after their Makmende Video going […]

Bridging the Divide: A call to Kenyan Techpreneurs

Something has been irking me lately.
