Africa Awakes!

Check out this short video clip on France24 about an exhibition at the City of Sciences and Industry ( Cité des sciences et de l'industrie) in Paris. Called When Africa Wakes Up, the exhibition demonstrates the role of science and technology in African development.

Exhibitions and reports like this are important because they show us a different side to Africa – a side more like the daily life of millions of Africans. Things are changing in Africa and we are part of the story.

Gillian, thanks for pointing out Sachs' article on CNNMoney, and for your comments on my response. While we don't always agree, I think there is enough common ground, and I appreciate your input.
