I met Ory Okolloh last week. Ory is this cool Kenyan gal who studied at Harvard Law School and is now going back home for a year before starting in private practice back in the States. We had a great chat talking about Ory taking on the Creative Commons challenge in East Africa. One way or another the conversation turned to blogging. An avid blogger herself, Ory told me about this cool site called 'Kenya Unlimited' that brings together a community of over 100 members who blog about, from, around, within Kenya. This simple site has done wonders for the Kenyan blogging community, nurturing Kenyan bloggers by welcoming them and showcasing them on the site and providing a directory of bloggers (The Kenyan Blogs Webring Members) with one thing in common: their connection with Kenya. This is a great idea - and comes back to an idea that I've been thinking of for a while now: only when there is a community of local users established, will creators in developing countries continue to produce digital content. Without that community, African creators are a lonely bunch and will turn away from the digital medium in favor of media with a greater response. I've been trying to get someone to develop a South African webloggers directory or portal - any takers?
