    i think the human ipo team did not view their blog as a business, u need to focus on monetisation & remember that your biggest commodity as a blog is the quality of your content. its also proof that money is not the all in all of startups

    Easy answer: Zympay

    The 88MPh’s blog post you mentioned didn’t sit well with a lot of people. Hadn’t considered it a show of their attitude which I think you’re right about. Let’s see what move they make next.

    The monetization of digital content will be interesting. I wonder what the reaction would be if one these local content producers gets really popular then just says they have premium content you can watch for $10 per month

    The problem is you guys, treat everything viral in Zimbabwe as a startup. P.O. Box is not a startup. neither are 263Chat or Kedha TV.
