Today, I will let you into some of my crazy thoughts. I am a very active person that the idea of staying idle usually drives me crazy.
I was thinking about how great it would be if people could sell their free time to people who needed it. Say for example, you have 24 hours that you have not found something great to use for, then you sell it to someone who is working day and night on this incredible project who may not afford the luxury of time but certainly has enough money that they wouldn't mind buying some.
In case you missed it, it is important that everyone hears that Nigeria has been officially declared Ebola free by the World Health Organization. It was announced yesterday in a press conference by the World Health Organization and the Federal Ministry of Health. If you carried the news of the outbreak, it is extremely important that you tell this part too, so no one would claim they missed it.
I like to share the stories that sum up my life with people, not because it is perfect, but because it is relatable. I discovered a long time ago in a very interesting way that everyone of us is going through one struggle or the other and though the struggles may be different, at the end of the day the solutions are pretty much laid down on some basic principles. I remember one time when someone confided in me and started sharing her struggles with me. I am very bad at sympathizing with people. If I dare tune into my emotional side, I will just start crying. I can cry more than the bereaved, you have no clue.
I know most of you heard what happened to Linda Ikeji, a popular blogger in Nigeria. In a brief summary, her blog was shut down due to copyright infringement. I noticed a lot of people that were talking about her were making the same mistakes she made, but the point is, they do not even understand why it could be a problem.
It is only happening to Linda Ikeji because she is that big. A lot of people that are raving about her would be dealing with even more if they were relevant. I just realized that it is not only bloggers, but for some reasons, we do not pay a lot of attention to the law in Nigeria, thus, end up taking a lot of things for granted. Even our filmmakers make the mistake Linda made.
The problem becomes apparent sooner than later when you have something that goes beyond our laid back society. A lot of things that we fail to pay attention to are big issues in other places. Invading someone else's intellectual property without proper consent is just as big as invading a landed property.
