2011 is indeed already shaping to be a big year for tech in Africa and Kenya in particular. We have caught wind about someone from the Avatar team giving a talk on Visual Effects and the marriage of IT, animation, film and music. We got this from one of the local mailing lists, KICTAnet:
We have invited one of Avatar makers to speak on the marriage of IT, animation, film and music to create one of the fastest growing modern industry, Visual Effects. This will take place at the Serena on the 10th of January 2011. If for some reason you have inerest in this new area please confirm your attendance by calling Margaret on 315517 by the 7th of January. God willing, 2011 shall be our busiest year ever.
