Hi everyone, my name is Adam. I’m 23 years old and live in New Zealand. For as long as I can remember, I have loved technology, what it could do and imagining all the wondrous things I come up with on the computer. Of course, being quite young back then, that meant creating drawings in Microsoft Paint, playing 3D pinball….

Meet Ryan and Miles Harris, the two brothers behind Sketchable, an app that makes creating art with Surface even better than drawing in a sketchbook. Ryan and Miles launched the app right alongside Windows 10, making Sketchable one of the first true Universal Windows Platform apps in the Microsoft Store. More than half a million downloads later, fans are raving….
Many exciting projects begin on paper napkins. Ours began on two sheets of paper. We were in Co-Creation Hub in Lagos for our #Insiders4Good program. The air conditioner was rattling at full blast, but thanks to the humidity, we were all slightly sweaty. Someone said, “we need a website for our fellows!”. Dona Sarkar, our imaginer-in-chief, quickly reached across the….

It was in our backyard, surrounded by mango trees and coconut trees. It had a naked incandescent lightbulb, no furniture, and no plumbing. At night, you could hear frogs croak and crickets chirp. I….

Cars and taxis heading to the airport must travel slowly, their drivers dodging the worst of the holes. There’s usually a traffic jam there. Right where the traffic slows is where they wait. They….
We were sitting in the CC Hub in Yaba, the tech hub of Lagos, Nigeria. The electricity and lights had just come back on after a long blackout, and we were waiting for our computers and phones to recharge. The internet hadn’t kicked back in yet. To help pass the time, Dara told us one of the Yoruba legends. Long….
