I learned from Erik Hersman over at WhiteAfrican.com that TEDAfrica is open for registration. This is technically the 2nd TED conference in Africa, although its the 1st to named TEDAfrica, a new annual conference focussed on bringing together the Cheetah generation with global visionaries in one mega conference. I also echo his sentiments that if this is even close to TEDGlobal in Tanzania, in 2007, it’ll be a huge success. And in the words of George Ayittey, these conference will rank as the most important events at the beginning of the 21st century for Africa.

To all the TEDGlobal Fellows I look forward to meet you again in my country, and one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Cape Town.
