Just the web? I don't think so.

A quick scan of our blog posts will show that the most consistent theme is the World Wide Web and it's technologies. There is nothing surprising about this, after all the Web is the most pervasive use of modern technologies and is the medium via which most IT capabilities are being delivered.

This is because the Web is the quickest and cheapest means to reach the largest number of people in the world. This is why people like me see the Web as the means to bring about a true Renaissance on so many levels of Nigerian life.

Having said all that, this blog is not about the Web or even just the Internet. It is about the journeyings of Nigeria down the path of IT. The web is the biggest highway in that journey, but the drivers and their reasons for travelling are what make the highway what it is and I need to keep remembering that.

How does IT make your life different from what it used to be (good or bad)?
