To find out about some sweet African surf spots, check out NY Times T-Magazine. Bonus: all swimwear is produced in Africa!

Important project! There are more people on Facebook today than lived on the planet 200yrs ago! Let’s use that power to bring down Joseph Konya, violent rebel leader destroying the lives of children + people in Uganda and beyond. KONY 2012 is a film and campaign by Invisible Children that aims to make Joseph Kony famous, not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice.  Sign the petition on the site and get involved on facebook.

I just love that amazing French-Senegalese actor Omar Sy is the first black man to win a César, the French Oscar. I completely fell for him when I watched his French film hit, Intouchables 2x(!) while in Europe. His energy, smile — his persona are just amazing! His win is an important signal in France, where African immigrants still have a hard time. See a scene from the film here and the trailer here.

An example tweet by Kenyan chief Francis Kariuki, who is using twitter to improve village life. Rad!
