This blog should have come before anything else. Anyhow, what’s this whole Africa’s New Frontier: Innovation, Technology and Prosperity conference about? The press release claims it will,

enrich our conversation about Africa, highlighting good news stories from Africa, and drawing on lessons learned, projecting trends, and focusing on the many ways in which Canada–Africa relations support innovation on the continent.

Some of the main sessions of the conference will be streamed live. So there’s an opportunity to be the judge. You can catch the streams here anytime you can. Other than that, return for my two cents worth of the whole conference.
