    great days at mobile monday inauguration yesterday. now we need a proactive agenda. lets evaluate and take a chance on a couple of projects next Monday. We need a go to market agenda. we will get to learn faster and appreciate that the google or apple way don’t hold in down town Africa. And lets stop lobbying safcom let the sleeping giant be.we are techies code is the most flexible thing ,hell html 5 can now draw really intricate 3 d and render video , in fact it can do a lot of what is done on CS5 . point being we won with mpesa, pespal’s api can attach a stock unit via n e commerce cart to a payment something the kawaida mpesa cant do. with USSD lets find a work around. So everybody get your project papers and be ready for some bashing. Facebook is coming down here, when they come will they find a tech start up with 0.001 percent market share of a market they need to get a foot hold on, and so they will have to pay to enter the market or will they set up offices and higher the best and brightest down here, it s our choice, see you guyz monday. and mobile monday was really the best time i have had at ihub so far. thanks to the organizing for this week may you all live to be 101 and still be rocking this world mobile monday style.

    hello peeps , well i travelled and was not in this monday, so does anybody know if we had a mobile monday session, this monday, I though it was to be done every week sort of. if so what was the goings on and also the nokia ovistore guyz were to come, does anybody know when. I am willing to put time and effort into helping to get this mobile monday thing going. since I came back I feel like ranting some, now how did the cck let safcom be a bank , a telco and also controll the billing interface to its payment systems. I know I said do not lobby and that stays, what the ict board should do is seriously reign down on these guyz, they are playing havoc with too much to be left alone. what we should do is get down to some serious code . lets be so good these guyz will have to license the tech from us. good day guyz. and if anyone knows who to contact on mobile monday agenda and the ovi store thing, email at this is a great thing at the ihub and we need to give it everything we have.
