Telling Tech Stories: ICT Conference on the Framework for Digital Markets in Kenya

On the 13th and 14th September, I was privileged to attend a conference organized by KICTANET and Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS). Venue? The beautiful Tribe hotel located inside Village Market.


The afternoon session on the first day of the conference was a panel discussion titled "Framework for digital markets: in Kenya and EAC region Outcomes of all sessions." It was moderated by Barrack Otieno and was comprised of Rosemary Koech-Kimwatu from Oxygene Ltd., S.M. Muraya the Director of Salte Digital and Wilberforce Seguton of Bunifu Technologies. Wilberforce shared interesting insights from his visit to Germany and talked about some best practices he noted during his visit.

When the topic of telling tech stories came up, I just had to comment:

As a storyteller I just wanted to add a comment on the telling stories issue. I think that a multi-stakeholder approach is needed even in this. Storytellers just want to tell stories and techies can be allowed to just be techies. It’s a matter of collaborating. How can we work together? How can we help each other? As a techie, can you go to a filmmaker and say “let’s do something together”. How can my skills help you and how can your skills help me. So it’s just a matter of working together. Also, innovating the way stories are told. Make films, make reality TV shows, make game shows. Like Lion's Den but for technology. So it’s just a way of finding better ways of getting the story out there and making the story “sexy” so that the kawaida (non-techie) person is first of all entertained because that’s how people learn.
