"If an Arab and a Jew can look at one another and see the Akashic lineage and see the one family, there is hope. If they can see that their differences no longer require that they kill one another, then there is a beginning of a change in history. And that's what is happening now. All of humanity, no matter what the spiritual belief, has been guilty of falling into the historic trap of separating instead of unifying. Now it's starting to change. There's a shift happening."

“ … Here is another one. A change in what Human nature will allow for government. "Careful, Kryon, don't talk about politics. You'll get in trouble." I won't get in trouble. I'm going to tell you to watch for leadership that cares about you. "You mean politics is going to change?" It already has. It's beginning. Watch for it. You're going to see a total phase-out of old energy dictatorships eventually. The potential is that you're going to see that before 2013.

They're going to fall over, you know, because the energy of the population will not sustain an old energy leader ..."

Google Supporting Technology Hubs in Africa

Google Africa Blog, Friday, May 4, 2012

As part of our mission in Africa to make the internet more relevant and useful, we are partnering with tech hubs. Our goal is to enable tech hubs by providing them with technical content, business tools, infrastructure upgrades, so that they can support increasing demand from developers and start-ups.

Whether an established tech hub like iHub (Kenya), or a brand new hub such as KINU (Tanzania), these partners are the technology leaders in their community and a logical home for Google communities such our Google Developer Groups and Google Business Groups. These groups are made up of entrepreneurs, developers and tech enthusiasts who use Google tools to create relevant solutions for themselves and their customers, and to power their businesses. For example, Olalashe, one of the winners of the Africa Android Developer Challenge, was developed by David Lemayian working out of the iHub.

Tech hubs provide a venue for developers and the wider tech community to engage directly with companies and training partners like Google. They host a range of events, workshops, and provide co-working space. Googler Bob Aman holds regular office hours at iHub in Nairobi, and earlier this year Googlers presented at CcHub’s Developers Parapo event “Google and the Nigerian Techie in 2012” in Lagos.

For those unable to attend Google I/O in person, we are working with our hub partners to bring the event live to you. This way, you can still connect with other talented developers and watch the keynote and other major sessions live. If any of the hubs is in your country, add them to your circle on Google+ and you’ll be updated on attending Google I/O Extended sessions. Thanks to our passionate technology leaders for providing an avenue for us to engage: Co Creation Hub (Nigeria), ICEAddis (Ethiopia), iHub (Kenya), Jokko Labs (Senegal), KINU (Tanzania), and iLab (Liberia).
