Yeah, we usually do this on Monday, but since we missed this week and all the holidays mean we have no idea what day it actually is any more, here’s something for cartography buffs all the same.

This isn’t the first map of African tech hubs to have appeared – that honour goes to the Ushahidi powered Afrihubs map which was set up by Bongohive in Zambia a couple of years ago. But this one is pretty and it is by the World Bank – even if it does have a few oversights (where’s JoziHub, for example?).

Tim Kelly’s work is lovely, though. The full map is below, and his write up about the importance of these tech centres is well worth reading over here.
