Future Now By Christian Aligba
eBook (PDF): $3.99
(1 Ratings)
In this short book, I have attempted to inspire and initiate a collective awakening to new possibilities that borders on a "different path" for African leadership - urgently needed to close... More > the sickening gap between the recent past and Africa's prodigious future. Chapter One tries to deliberate on the repulsive legacy of the "typical" African leadership and the case for change. In Chapter Two, I attempt to discuss the imperative to fan the embers of the Afrocentric leadership revolution that has begun already. Chapter Three briefly explores the need to embrace an education archetype for leadership in Africa: one that posits a binary view or philosophy I call "Heart x Mind" - where "education" is not exaggeratedly reliant on cognitive abilities or superior academic achievements but one that is proselytised in sound value systems. You will certainly enjoy reading this book! It's quick, vivid, provocative and immersive. More importantly, it's beautifully written, intimately reported and passionately argued.< Less

"As new technologies come into play, people become less and less convinced of the importance of self expression. Teamwork succeeds private effort." Marshall McLuhan. Despite these words,... More > the true nature of collaborative culture as a form of creative expression in the context of digital and network technologies has remained elusive, a buzzword often falling prey to corporate and ideological interests. This book was collaboratively written by five authors, as an experimental five day Book Sprint in January 2010. Developed under the aegis of transmediale.10, this third publication in the festival's parcours series resulted in the initiation of a new vocabulary on the forms, media and goals of collaborative practice. Mushon Zer-Aviv, Michael Mandiberg, Mike Linksvayer, Marta Peirano, Alan Toner, Aleksandar Erkalovic (programmer), Adam Hyde (facilitator) and Laleh Torabi (cover design).
