Steve Jobs because of his mind, resilience and brilliance. His quote, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice.

The advantages of social media cannot be lauded enough. However, when the government announced that it was planning to work with Communications Commission of Kenya to protect Kenyans from offensive material ahead of the coming elections it got me thinking.[..]
I recently restored our company’s network after a four months hiatus of internet ‘unconnectivity’. It had become almost impossible to work from the office due to the intermittent availability of this essential facility. Many preferred to work offsite and only. [..]
Ask any Chief Information Officer (CIO), anywhere in the world what comes to mind when they think of Kenya... Their response will be about technology: MPESA; Konza Technology City and, more recently, cloud computing. The MJ that used to run this town wasn’t Michael Jackson,.[..]
In our issue on Branding- Issue #16, we presented an image of Adolf Hitler alongside other current and historical individuals. This was an error on our part. By placing him alongside positive change makers we were seen to have condoned his many dastardly acts. This was not our intention. We apologize profusely for this lapse in judgement. History is and will always be clear on the evil that Adolf Hitler perpetuated. The Editor
