Ingenuity: Innovations website on ‘Time’ best list

2008-07-01 00:00

AfriGadget, a website that reports on African ingenuity and innovation, has made it on to the list of Time magazine’s 50 Best Websites for 2008.

The AfriGadget site is run by a team of volunteers who contribute material from all over the continent and showcases simple yet sustainable inventions that boost living and working conditions in Africa.

“There’s a lot of international development news that doesn’t make it on to CNN. So bookmark AfriGadget … it offers such distinctive reporting that you won’t want to miss a single post,” says Time magazine.

“Being named as one of the best sites the web has to offer is an honour for AfriGadget,” says founder and editor Erik Hersman.
