Greetings Fellow List Members,
I am new to this List and an Afrimerican, I live and work in Brooklyn, NY.
USofA. I have none of the sterling
credentials (PhDs-etc.) 0f some of the other list members- in fact I own a
Computer because I believe those of us in the Diaspora Should and _must_ be
computer literate and technologically competitive in the next Century.
A hundred years ago the history of Africa was written
with the technology of the Machine Gun, We were not
up to speed and consequently found our Continent in
the control (physically and economically) of others.
This may or may not have been a good thing, it would
however be a terrible thing for Us to lag behind in the
use of the present (future?) technology which puts the
world literally at Our fingertips.
I look forward to sharing with All of you( African and others of good will
) discussion and the enlightenment
which naturally follows intelligent discussion.
