blog classics

I am a sucker for good old wisdom and to see how people were thinking then and relate it to now. There are some archived blogs that i find interesting.

Let’s start locally, Ory Okolloh’s blog has insights about her views on politics, social justice na kadhalika as she calls it. Last blog post was in 2010. Gives you a feel of kenya, africa and global affairs between 2005-2010 especially.

The immediate former CEO of Uber, Travis Kalanick has an old blog called swooshing that was last updated in 2010. It offers his insights on startups, investing and technology in general. One post even predicted what would happen to a company once its reputation is in question, especially in relation to past dealings. for example this quote is lifted from one of the blogs ‘ But I think that reputation is anything but dead, and instead will become more important than ever. With more data and info getting on the net, and as the tools to decipher fact from fiction get better, reputation becomes more accurate, and significantly more valuable‘.

If you are into technology, startups and related insights i find Mark Essien of Hotels.ng  , Mark Cuban and Fabrice Grinda’s equally thrilling.  These are still updated once in a while.

would love to hear your suggestions on favourite old blogs that are not updated anymore.
