@kelz Rather than thinking the startup scene is not exciting, I'd say it's not big enough. Yet.
@PapaOlabode I'd also think it would be more appropriate to refer to the media business in this context as the tech-focused media business (quite a mouth full). However, even with all the 300 pound gorillas in SF, the media business in Nigeria is still very profitable for some folks aka Linda, Nairaland.....this trend of successful hyper-local media blogs aka gossip blogs is consistent in many climes despite the SF gorillas.....and of recent, a number of media startups OMG digital, Pulse..etc got a lot of attention. There is relatively a lot activity in that area despite your stated odds..
As regards TC, I strongly believe there're some ongoing friction internally, what conclusion is one left with when TC isn't able to keep their best people at work. However I rest my case, throwing inquisition on every new development surrounding TC isn't doing any good if they'll turn things around they'd need the space. Unless someone is interested in going into the tech news then a breaking piece on TC seeming slide is one great way to come out. (evil grin)
Good luck guys, and remember it doesn't hurt to hope for a little bit of help from God. Yes, God, the real big Chief, He can be real when you need him to. It doesn't hurt one bit, even if you half believe in prayers.
While importing SF to LAG, let's not buy wholesale their many ill notions of faith or lack of it. Am done. Godspeed!!
