“Human Collaboration,
Africa’s Revolutionary Application for Broad Band Expansion”

“We need a Internet content and collaboration public strategy such that upon connecting an African broadband connection with a town, its capacity will be maximized and exceeded in the shortest amount of time possible.”     – Richard C. Close 2013


     This paper  explores how to leverage the Internet’s collaborative multipliers of human learning dynamics in order to rapidly scale broadband traffic in Africa—and ultimately connect Africans to themselves for economic and cultural development.  It describes how the synchronized evolution of both network design and human communication has evolved into the global collaborative framework we call the Net. Once understood, clarity can be gained as to why traditional view points for scaling (such as killer applications of media) may not provide the scalable Returns On Investment (ROI) that community collaboration models are more likely to deliver. Finally, the Chapter proposes a Community Development Center in African towns to seed and accelerate the process of leveraging broadband technologies.
