Focusing on technology, we shed the negative stereotypes that have long misrepresented sub-Sahara Africa. The continent is being shaped and influenced by online interactions and technical hardware. We explore the impact of mobile money on the day-to-day lives of citizens, the extent of conflict minerals in electronics, and how the dominance of social media companies could constitute a new techno-colonialism.
