My Facebook Look back & life

Facebook is 10 this year. Great stuff. I'm a huge fan of Mark Zuckerberg. I've loved using Facebook but never considered working there like I did for Google (and ultimately did). I was watching the Social Network movie just the other night. Awesome cinema. I didn't join Facebook as soon as I knew about it. Took some months to do so. It's been a great ride. Facebook has had its issues but I've loved it. I've made many friends there, some of whom I've never met but are really close with.

Below is a video looking back at my Facebook life. I love that one of the first pictures I have up is of the Akwaaba lady. At some point in the video, it centers on the new Barcamp Ghana sticker logo. That's so appropriate. But erm, maybe that happens because that was and still is my current profile picture? hehe.

Being recognised as a leader & legend of inspiration

I met +Mabel Blankson last year after +Barcamp Ho. She was introduced to me by +Ali Bukari Maiga. I rode with her, +Seyram Freddy Ahiabor and another lady back to Accra after the event. I didn't get to know her as much as I could have but that's a story for another day. Early this year, she approached me saying she wanted to write about me on her blog. Wow, I thought. Hadn't realised she was the writer type. After some whatsapp chats back and forth, she asked me a number of questions and I answered her. Today. this blog post was born.

Read on. It's a good read. I have talked about various things in the post she has via some of these blog posts so you can learn more via these. The Tech (KNUST primary and JSS) years. The Presec years. The MIT years. I don't have a post …

If only I could write lovely emails like this more often

I hardly check my yahoo account, I check it once every two months or so. Or when I am expecting some important information that only goes there. Tonight, I started looking at my drafts. Emails I never sent. One of the drafts reminded me of when I first was in love. I mean that's what it had to be. Just read this email I was going to send to a lady. The whole email was written like a poem :-)
