 If you're reading this somewhere in Africa, then perhaps you should thank Nii Quaynor. The Ghanaian professor is known as "Africa's father of the internet," a web pioneer who helped establish some of the continent's first online connections. For some 20 years now, soft-spoken Quaynor has been at the forefront of web development across Africa. He is the first African to be elected to the board of ICANN, the internet corporation for assigned names and numbers. He's also played an important part in launching the African Network Operators Group and AfriNIC, the African internet numbers registry.
