Description

In this episode, James speaks to Toby Shapshak, editor-in-chief of Stuff magazine and writer for Forbes. Toby is a strong believer that innovation is better in Africa. He says innovative ideas are born of constraint, and because there's a great deal of need in Africa for novel ways to solve various problems, there's a constant stream of ideas coming out of the continent. He talks about how the rush of multinationals looking to invest in South Africa has led to the arrival of quantum computing, discusses the importance of digital anthropology within the mobile space, and examines how drones are being used not only to combat poachers, but also to autonomously deliver life-saving blood parcels to people in Rwanda.
