NEW: The overlooked history of African technology

A new book , Transient Workspaces - Technologies of Everyday Innovation in Zimbabwe,  Clapperton Mavhunga (an associate professor in MIT’s Program in Science, Technology, and Society) views technology in Africa from an African perspective by exploring the confluence of innovation, hunting and nature in Zimbabwe.

Technology in his account is not something always brought in from outside, but is also something that ordinary people understand, make, and practice through their everyday innovations or creativities — including things that few would even consider technological.
