About

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 each piece means, how it affects the next, and how they all fit together — the subtext.

The Subtext project is my attempt to provide this perspective. Expect essays about the impact of the internet and the business of innovation across the continent. Sometimes witty, often thoughtful, always worth your time.

The Subtext is written and published by me, Osarumen Osamuyi. I am currently an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Africa's Talking Labs.

The Subtext is designed in Figma, built with HTML, CSS, & Twig for Craft 3, and hosted on Fortrabbit. Image compression is done using Imager. Stats are tracked using Google Analytics. Infrastructure is provided by GCP/Google Cloud. Email & contact management are done using Sendgrid. Posts are written in Notion, on a MacBook Pro with a keyboard that only works when it's in the mood to (but thanks for the TouchBar, Apple!).
