Jonathan Starr founded Abaarso Tech in Somaliland to unlock the potential of the country's brightest boys and girls.
Some points I should have made in my post last week.
Iraq's sectarian divisions are deep, militants both Sunni and Shiite still roam the landscape, and the US is no longer in a position to do much about it.
A Human Rights Watch report documents abuses by the Somali government and African Union peacekeeping forces, as well as Al Shabab.
If rebels can hold on to Zawiyah, a recently captured town on Muammar Qaddafi's main supply route from Tunisia to Tripoli, the end of his rule becomes a matter of when, not if.
The leaders of Venezuela and Mexico have been fighting crime in similar ways. But differences in political agendas, cooperation with the US, and high-level corruption raise interesting questions.
Turkey, which is leading an international effort to persuade the Assad regime against violence, last week gave Syria a deadline of 10 to 15 days to stop its brutal crackdown.
Rebels say they now control most of the city of Zawiyah and have cut off the main resupply route for the capital, Tripoli.
Crackdowns on the scale of Syria's have prompted action by the International Criminal Court elsewhere. The ICC opened an investigation against Qaddafi just three weeks into Libya's uprising.
