If you are a writter, or desire to become one, this is the best place for you to get started.
We have tools to let you compose any form of literature, from anywhere you can access the internet, and then share your work (both drafts and final work) with friends, family and the entire planet now and in the future!
To become a writer on the NuScribes platform, you need to apply for a Scribe profile, which you get after we've gotten in-touch with you, and established exactly what kind of literature you wish to publish via this platform. To get started, send your introduction/request mail to email@example.com, and await our response, after which you'll be given credentials and a guide for how to start using your scribe profile.
If you are a publisher (traditional or electronic), and wish to talk business concerning any of our exhibited works or writers, don't hesitate to initiate the conversation. To get started, contact us with information on your particular needs, at firstname.lastname@example.org
This platform is combines new ways of publishing books, discovering writers and enjoying books in a whole new and flexible way online and offline.
The innovation introduces a self-publishing model in which authors enrolled onto the platform get to author books with simple, online editors directly on the platform, review their work, and then finally self-publish the polished or draft pieces for the entire world to read!
The entire world can browse all free and public NuScribes libraries; either reading the books directly online, or downloading portable, standard e-book formats (EPUB), for reading offline on any ebook reader software of their liking; on mobile, tablet or desktop.
NuScribes is especially aimed at a new breed of young, creative and adventurous writers, and especially with a hope to inspire many otherwise unpublished and uncelebrated talent in schools (especially girls) all across Africa, to get their voice to the whole world for Free!
Why Books? Books are immortal! So, instead of encouraging writers to focus on blogs, essays and such, we aim to inspire more writers to embrace one of the most powerful mediums of communication ever concieved by man - the book. So, though traditional publishing is out of reach for most aspiring writers, we on the otherhand aspire to not compromise on quality, without letting costs get in the way of creativity and talent exposure. We aspire to be the best and most affordable publishing service any writer will ever be capable of accessing, anywhere!
We also aspire to inspire more africans to read and write constructive books, not just online, but offline as well, as a more progressive and recreational means to spend time - in the process, nurturing and inspiring the next generation of eminent african intellectuals and scholars.
This book chronicles the growing involvement and interests of the Nu Chwezi, in technology, especially those ideas bordering on bringing the future, quickly, into the present. Many of the ideas presented here are already being explored in our labs, and some are things we only plan or hope to tackle eventually. Ultimately, this is a repository of the ideas behind much of the technology research we desire to contribute to, as our solid contribution to the building of a Nu Africa, a Nu World, a Nu Humanity... for the better.
It is our responsibility as technologists and creators, to shape and manifest the world others only dream of.
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO BEFORE YOU DIE?
Thousands of people were asked that question in various places all over the world (see the Project here), and in this piece, I attempt to collect together a good number of them - taking care to not echo most duplicates, but again, preserve an idea of what dreams most people had. Definitely, there could be bias in the chocies I made (I can't say I was objectively random), but I tried to be fair to all sorts of perspectives - including the ones that admitted to being clueless!
Okay, personally, were I to answer this question, my answer would already be somewhere on line...
What about you? Which of these responses resonates the most with you? Do you think it worth to ask this question, and try answering it?
