Default Re: Bit the bullet and resurrected the blog

I don't normally write a full intro for a new blog post, but this one's different.

This is about a project that I've been involved on the periphery of, and about how simple ideas can genuinely change the world. It's also about improving the quality of life in some of the most deprived regions in the developing world via a simple technological innovation and the drive to empower people in those regions to take control of their own destinies.

I ask that you share this as widely as possible, and get it in front of people with influence so that we can ensure that the project I'm talking about here can really fly.

This really is an important one. Getting awareness of this out there might be the single most important and impactful thing your or I have ever done.

Asante sana, as they say in Kenya.

New blog post: Give a Man a Fish...

How simple ideas can change the world.

New blog post: Ich Dien

http://reciprocity-giving-something-.../ich-dein.html

Service, protest and taking-the-knee.

Apologies for my lack of engagement of late. I've been extremely busy between the River Power Pod Africa project and its promotion and the youth music project.

Hope to have more time for involvement in the near future.

Hack, why isn't some major publisher paying you to do these pieces?

A fine effort.

Thanks.

Perhaps because I haven't caught anybody's eye yet.

Much appreciated.

Indeedy - seconded on Hidden Figures, an excellent movie.

And I'll bung in a plug for Alice Roberts' latest book: Tamed: 10 Species That Changed Our World.
