Introducing 'Agent Bez'

Once again a comment that got out of hand, which deserves its own spot as a blog, so an introduction to me, and how i came to evoke (a brief one, I hope)

Ushahidi - The power of information

Ushahidi is an awsome example of how poeple are able to empower themselves making use of the new information technology, once they are aware of it and have access to it.

Hi Richard,
Thanks for reading and commenting on my "secret identity". I haven't heard about "charter Cities", could you tell me a bit more about them? (you're impression of what it is and perhaps a link would be great!)

Who ever said being a blogger was a bad thing. ;) However, yeah, any large community has a propensity for attracting trolls—just try and ignore them and focus on all the other awesome stuff going on!

I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
