I still don't understand the revenue model for Facebook and this is why I am still surprised at its valuation. As you right pointed, starting up a business online is becoming cheaper everyday. If you have the right skills, your initial cost might just be that which you pay to your web host. I think we will see many young techie launching forth some online businesses which will definitely succeed if properly managed I don't think this is peculiar to only Africa internet startups alone.

Future generations of african internet projects and consumers will learn from their fathers, as we have learned from our African net pionneers, and possibly gain enough experience to create a market ripe enough to generate the type of revenue we hope for. We are not the African millionaires of today. Tomorrow will be another story. PS: Some of us are already 'ramen profitable' :) The African netentrepreneurs might not be the millionaires they hope purely from their internet companies,

We are not the African millionaires of today. Tomorrow will be another story.

PS: Some of us are already 'ramen profitable' :)
