Some time in march I will need to go back to Kano, Nigeria, hopefully for the second Nigerian Free and Open Source software conference. I'm looking forward to seeing Mustapha (now a proud father) and Ibrahim and Immanu and the rest of the guys again. The news out of Nigeria hasn't been very good recently, and the Dutch government is advising against travel to the south of the country at all; this doesn't apply to the north, which I found a wonderful place to visit and talk about Free Software last year. Licensing is always an issue, as are business models.

I was therefore really happy to stumble across the FOSS for Africa wiki with a whole series of educational modules around business models and examples of what works in Africa right now.
