That was the failure of Google+ built out of ego. They started it to out-facebook Facebook. Where Snapchat that sends disappearing messages soar, almighty G+ was a graveyard. Another story, like you said.
It’s important to note if the community is very serious about creating a cluster, they should be interested more in bringing all the important elements together to ensure the prosperity of the region, for tech and Internet companies. The presence of Yabatech and Unilag for one is a good start. Another is, how cheap is the rent there? And several other elements yet to be considered.
But no, let’s talk about what name is cool or not!
I was in Akure one time, extremely quiet city. You can literally drive with your eyes closed. 3 bedroom as low as N250k per annum. Eateries everywhere. Boulevard is actually there(I swear I’m not lying or exaggerating). I saw trees everywhere. Hotels were built door to door. For a minute, I thought I was out of Nigeria. There is FUTA. Life is cheap, easy and quiet here. What is your business in Lagos again?That’s what I kept asking myself. The only thing left is fast internet and sufficient “geeky” youth presence.
I don’t know mhen, I’m just saying we should just chill on this Yaba obsession.
For me personally, Yaba is not top choice for office if I should set up one today. The last time there, I spent close to an hour around Sabo making a turn.
