* I think it’s impossible to develop good mobile interfaces without being emerged in this context
* I think it’s much harder to outsource innovation than coding, but, at least in this context, innovation is what we need to find
* I think that the advice i got today from Bridgette at Google Africa is worth taking seriously:
** That we can never under estimate the need for marketing, incentive structures and face-to-face assistance.
** That hiring 10 smart interns might be worth more than hiring 1 smart developer.
** That we need to stop thinking of mobile applications as an extension of our web service and start thinking about it as self contained apps
** That incentive structures, immediate gratification for people to register may help lower the barrier to entry
* I think that we really need to embrace the open-source and barcamp style communities if we want to deliver world class systems to refugees worldwide.
* I think the challenges ahead could be extremely exciting but also pretty risky.
* I think the Nairobi scene is the coolest shit i’ve seen since the good old days of the wireless communities in djurlsand, freifunk berlin and the amazing copemhagen interpolation.
