There are many sites covering the day-to-day of Africa's technology revolution, but these times need commentary that focuses on the forest, not the trees: asking what underlies each piece, how it affects the next, and how [if!] they fit in with the rest of the puzzle.
The Subtext is my attempt to provide this perspective. Expect essays examining the mobile internet's impact, the causes of adoption, and mental models showing how [not what] to think about markets across the continent. Join the conversation about history, competitive strategy, and the causality of success and failure in African technology.
