No. 13: 3 Thursday Bedtime Reads – Google Links Ghana | Apple’s Newest Board Member is Black | PushBlack

  1. It’s an advertising company! It’s an infrastructure company! It’s, it’s Google! What doesn’t this company, now a portfolio company of Alphabet, do? Google is trenching around 1,000km of fiber optic cables to connect  Accra, Tema and Kumasi. Through Project Link, internet service providers will buy capacity from Google to offer to consumers, unlike Google Fiber here in the US, which is sold directly to consumers. With all the new of companies trying to put stuff in the air to bring internet to less developed regions, it’s nice to have a more grounded project in the works.

  2. Apple showed more signs of being serious about addressing its diversity issue with the appointment of Jim Bell as a board member. I thought the former CFO at Boeing had gone across my radar at some point. Sure enough, he used to be board chair of the Chicago Infrastructure Trust. Read up on the Trust. The concept is intriguing. Unfortunately, it looks like his tenure did not go well. Here’s to the Apple experience being awesome for him.

  3. Check out the new site launched by the team at PushBlack.They’re doing good work. Salute!
