Gaaddzoooks! I am the fastest talking person I have ever listened to. Thank God I know this early, now I can learn-how-to-speak-slow, and I don’t have to learn this one day when I have a radio interview organized with the largest radio show in some country.
Anyway this is the guy who is teaching me how I can make a living writing the Displaced African (I can’t recommend Yaro highly enough.To learn more about Yaro check out his free book, Blog Profits Blueprint). Give me feedback on how I can improve my interview technique, I am currently in the process of trying to get into the media and I want to make sure I am the best interview subject EVER.
Now that you have seen my face, you are free to stalk me as long as you stalk me bearing gifts

From the same article, I got this BBC news report: check out the ideas on brain circulation: yet another model worth emulating me thinks.
