The Masquerade : On Evolution and Gratitude

There is a saying among the Igbos of Southeastern Nigeria that:

Anaghi ano ofu ebe ekiri Mmonwu

Which roughly translates into :

One does not stand at the same spot while watching the dance of a great masquerade

The great masquerade in this context refers to Sub Saharan African tech ecosystem.

After an amazing four years at Google, it appears that the time has come to observe this great masquerade from yet another vantage point.

Today is my last day at Google.

I will be moving on to commence other adventures that will hopefully position the ecosystem in Sub Saharan Africa to move on to the next stage in its evolution.
