I am Lighton Phiri. I blog mostly about computing technology; and, occasionally, about my other interests.
I am, for all intents and purposes, a student of computing technology—most of my past and recent work engagements, specialised formal education, and scholarly activities have been exclusively within applied computing fields.
While I have a general interest in computing, my specific focus has largely been centred around Data Storage, Management and Analysis; Digital Libraries; Educational Technology; and the Web.
I, however, also have a keen interest in education; electricity; and, more recently, efficient modes of transportation. In addition, I have over the last couple of years developed an insatiable curiosity and fascination with mysticism, culture and history… I am particularly intrigued by West African Vudun (a similar religion was practised by my ancestors long before the Scramble for Africa).
