Earlier this week I was guest on the weekly #263Chat discussion hosted by Nigel Mugamu where the discussion was centred on tech in Zimbabwe; the state of, the challenges, possible solutions, opportunities, funding for entrepreneurs and other issues. #263Chat is a really interesting way to have a real-time virtual gathering and discuss important common issues. If you’re not on Twitter yet, this is a good reason to try it.
Anyway, the discussion last about 2 hours and in that time I and many other Zimbabwean Tweeters (Twimbos is the name) shared their views on these issues. We thought we’d post some of the most interesting tweets here for those of you that didn’t attend. You can view all the tweets here, remember to select to view all tweets.
