Tech Cabals Instead of Tech Eco-Systems?

I've grown tired of hearing the word "Tech Eco-system" what does it really mean? my friends at bite.tech helped me understand it better; 

"a tech ecosystem is an interconnected, interdependent network of various players that combine to create innovative products and services in tech. These players primarily include tech startups; more established tech companies; tech company founders; investors and investment groups; mentors and organisations that provide business support. A successful tech ecosystem allows for many smaller companies to bring innovation to market. "
after reading this it becomes clearer that we're far from having a tech eco-system in Nigeria, though a few people like Mark Essien (boss at hotels.ng), OO Nwoye (the Nigerian) and a few others are endlessly trying to build such environments, our inherent nature to have cabals keeps diminishing the efforts of these great men. 
I'll give you a personal account; I attended a "tech party"…

Has Mark Zuckerberg Forgotten About Our Satellite?

I have an unconditional love for Mark Zuckerberg (oh Zuck my man, if you've never heard of him, you may now rest in peace), he's one of our most celebrated Tech Heroes for all his accomplishments and immense contributions to new media and the tech community at large. He's recently taken a philanthropic view with his corporate social responsibility projects at Facebook, Africa included.

He Posted this on his Facebook page on the 5th of October, 2015:

He promised to launch a satellite called Amos- 6 in collaboration with Eutelsat to help beam Internet connectivity to large parts of Africa (especially sub-saharan Africa) so people living in remote regions can equally have access to the internet (and grandma can finally signup on facebook lol).
Space X (a rocket company owned by the batman of Tech; Elon Musk) which was contracted to launch this satellite into space so we can start enjoying "beta Internet",  unfortunately, accidentally destroyed this Satellite during one…
