I discovered Peeje T. via this Gizmodo article [http://gizmodo.com/hilarious-guy-photoshops-celebrities-into-his-instagram-510416388] , and while the article disappointed in that it had very little to do with technology, the discovery itself was quite entertaining. Peeje T. or peejet [http://instagram.com/peejet] as he is known across the interwebs, is famous
Over the last few months, I've had the pleasure of stumbling across a couple of blogs by African authors that truly resonate with me.

From interviews with successful African moguls to

The Institute provides an enabling environment for entrepreneurs to originate and actualise start-up technical ventures.
Last night for some odd reason, I found myself binging on Saturday Night Live Digital Shorts [http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/digital-shorts/videos/] (Short comedies from the SNL show ).
