Three recent blog posts (with a gap during a busy summer) may be of interest to some on this list:

1) TED talks in African languages?  (vey few TED/TEDx talks have been given in or translated into African languages) 19 June 2016
http://niamey.blogspot.com/2016/06/ted-talks-in-african-languages.html

2) Missing "macrolanguages" of Africa (macrolanguage was essentially a shim to fit ISO 639-3 with ISO 639-1 & -2, but is it a concept that should be applied to more African languages?) 31 August 2016
http://niamey.blogspot.com/2016/08/missing-macrolanguages-of-africa.html

3) Facebook, ISOC, and A12n (a couple of events last week call attention to two complementary aspects of the "Africanization" [A12n] of ICT) 3 September 2016
