Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey correctly believes that Africa will define the future.
It looks like Silicon Valley executives are finally starting to realize how much untapped potential there is in Africa. Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey recently said that he plans on living in Africa for a good part of 2020.
Sad to be leaving the continent…for now. Africa will define the future (especially the bitcoin one!). Not sure where yet, but I’ll be living here for 3-6 months mid 2020. Grateful I was able to experience a small part. 🌍 pic.twitter.com/9VqgbhCXWd

The reason why Silicon Valley executives like Dorsey have not utilized the untapped potential that exists in Africa is because of the institutional racism that exists within these companies. For some reason, these companies believe that Whites and Asians are better engineers and programmers. If they didn’t have this racist world view, they would already have a much larger presence on the African continent. Right now, their presence is minimal at best.
Unlike these hateful Silicon Valley companies, the Daily Stormer has maintained a longtime presence in the African country of Nigeria. That’s because the Daily Stormer is a tolerant organization that does not judge people based on the color of their skin.
We’ve known for awhile that Nigeria is an excellent country to do business in. Even Dorsey seems to be coming around to understanding this.
So grateful to finally be in Nigeria 🇳🇬

But you don’t have to take our word for it.
Just take a look at these pictures of Lagos.
The highly organized electrical and network infrastructure in Lagos, Nigeria is excellent and on par if not better than most Western countries. Most data centers located in Lagos have guaranteed 99.999999% uptime.
The transportation system in Lagos is one of the main highlights of the city. Public transportation is reliable and timely. Traffic is rarely a problem.
Lagos is widely recognized as one of the safest cities in all of Africa. Public safety is not a concern.
But what makes Lagos such a great place are all the talented Nigerians that live there. There are many smart and high IQ Nigerians that these big tech companies have refused to hire. It’s a damn shame, because these people have much to offer.
Here’s just a small sample of the broad engineering and programming talent that exists in Lagos.
Two Nigerian software engineers discuss the finer points of advanced object-oriented programming methods.
Young Nigerian Computer Science students celebrate earning their four-year degrees in the discipline.
Nigerian software engineers hard at work on creating a new African cryptocurrency.
A Nigerian hardware engineer gathers components and parts for a new African supercomputer being built for the Nigerian space program.
These are obviously some very talented people. It is good that Mr. Dorsey is abandoning the institutional racism that exists in Silicon Valley and is finally discovering how much Africans can contribute to the technology field.
