- Is our business community ready? Are they utilising IT to modernise the way they do their business? Where is the increased Kenyan-based business content? Why haven't the number of listed firms with a commercial website increased since 2006?
- Is govt ready? I keep hearing about computerisation project, but why is it still difficult to locate land maps and the like? Will Kibz be able to work the videolink in his office? How about data protection especially as it pertains to publicly-held records?
- And mwananchi? I know sales of computers, laptops and associated paraphernalia going up massively, but are guys learning e-commerce as a subject? Or html and related languages? Are entrepreneurs queuing up to push aside none ecommerce business models?

Is Kenya ready for e-commerce?
Assuming the fibre-optic projects are delivered in time next year (Seacom which is due to be delivered first will land in June'09) Kenya's economy may well see the same revolution as has occurred due to mobile technology (why are guys so ready to put down Safcom which has driven this?).
