The TechLoy Lists of the most influential technology people are made up of entrepreneurs, activists, enthusiasts, executives, programmers and bloggers.
Their ideas and actions ignite dialogue and disrupt our senses while impacting on the technology and mobile eco-system within Africa.
Before we come up with this list, we look at each individual’s work, how they impact on the eco-system, their followership/fan base and how often each of them appear in the news.
Public nominations have now closed for the 2012 list. We’re working on the nominations and will publish the list by January 2013.
