The Rise of the Nigerian Blogger

Kole, a Nigerian now studying in New York pointed me at The Blogger As Nemesis
by Adebayo Williams. He writes:

“Of all the dangers threatening the post-colonial state in Nigeria, none is more debilitating and potentially more devastating than the rise of the Nigerian blogger. Using tactics and electronics normally associated with advance espionage, taking advantage of globalization and the sheer borderless ness of the new world, the blogger threatens the very foundation of the post-colonial state in its totality and territoriality.?

A shorter version of this text was given as opening speech at the launch of at the Empire State Building, New York, Saturday, February 18th, 2006. Professor Adebayo Williams is immediate past fellow of the Amy Lee chair at the University of the Incarnate Word, San Antonio (USA).
