Dear South African Geeks: great ideas don’t miraculously come to people in a moment of inspiration, they evolve over a lifetime of hard work and personal sacrifice. Innovation is a sloppy process and when it comes to a great idea there is no exact formula. Lastly, leverage skills to develop innovative and sustainable solutions within your own community.
