TEDx Week

This week we’ll be distributing all the talks recorded last week at TEDxKampala. What was TEDxKampala? On November 23rd, 2009, Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the world wide web dropped by Kampala, Uganda for our first ever TEDx. The event was facilitated by UNICEF who graciously provided catering, snacks and the venue; and co-organized by the Uganda Linux Users Group. Simply put, the event was incredible! Stephen Boyera of the World Wide Web Foundation offered the keynote talk, while Ron Nixon from the New York Times dropped with arguably one of the most interesting talks of the day where he presented his app Ujima which tracks spending too and from African countries. Solomon King of Node Six gave a moving talk on how he became a ‘famous citizen journalist’ for simply blogging about his experiences during the Kampala riots. Paul Bagyenda of Digital Solutions offered advice for young tech entrepreneurs, while Paul Asiimwe of Sipi Law Uganda talked about the importance of intellectual property law and digital rights to protect content and content producers.

The video below shows the event introductions by Sharad Sapra, myself, Reinier Battenberg, Sir Tim Berners-Lee and others…

Here are some clips from the Q&A Session with Mr. Berners-Lee. The discussion here is largely focused on localization and the production of local content…

Special thanks to all our sponsors and organizers: Reinier Battenberg, Kyle Spencer, Simon Vass, Daniel Stern and UNICEF Uganda!
