Graham Holliday, the blogger and social media expert, gave an insightful talk about the internet boom in the former war-torn African state of Rwanda.

Graham spoke about how people outside the mainstream media are exploring new ways of publishing and distributing content - using social networking tools such as Afrigator - an African news aggregator that pulls together stories from media sources across the continent - and Gatorpeeps, which is basically Twitter Africa-style.

Since moving to Rwanda in 2009, Graham has created Kigali Wire, a weblog dedicated to all things Rwandan. 

As high-speed internet connectivity improves across Rwanda and Africa at large, its role in how Africans communicate with each other and their global neighbours will be immeasurable.
