About Dave Donelson

donelsoncameralores.jpgMy career as a broadcaster, entrepreneur, and writer has taken me from the jungles of Australia’s Cape York Peninsula to the minarets of Riyadh. I’ve climbed the spire of the Empire State Building, floated the Usumacinta River to the Mayan ruins at Piedras Negras in Guatemala, and photographed the tree-climbing lions and mountain gorillas of Uganda.

My latest novel is Heart of Diamonds, a tale of scandal, love, and death in the Congo, available in September from Kunati Books.

I’m also the author of Creative Selling, a non-fiction how-to for anyone who wants to get ahead in the world of sales, and Hunting Elf, a comedic canine adventure.

One Response to About Dave Donelson

  1. hi dave,

    i’m looking forward to reading your novel, i’m also writing a book on congo, we study bonobos and it’s due in 3 weeks – eek!

    i saw your blogpost on the congo chip, i wrote and this is what i got back from them:

    Hello –

    Thank you for your email, and for voicing your concern.

    “Congo” is the internal code name for AMD’s second generation ultrathin
    notebook platform. “Congo” is not a marketing term that will be used to
    brand the final product once launched. Please note that AMD uses names
    of rivers for code-names of its notebook platforms; examples include
    “Tigris,” “Yukon,” and “Nile.” “Congo” refers to the river that runs
    through multiple countries in Africa, not the Republic of Congo.

    AMD has been a member of the Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition
    (EICC) since 2006. As part of our supply chain management process, we
    set expectations annually with our top tier suppliers regarding
    adherence to our Worldwide Standards of Business Conduct and the EICC
    Code of Conduct. We are actively monitoring the conflict minerals issue
    as well as proposed legislation in the U.S. Congress. The EICC is
    currently researching the extractive metals supply chain (specifically
    tin, tantalum, and cobalt) as it relates to the electronics industry.
    We will continue to monitor this relevant issue and its potential
    effects.

    AMD has a strong track record of contributing to good works in Africa,
    including leading initiatives such as the 50×15 Foundation
    http://50×15.amd.com/en-us/sol_results_diepsloot.aspx.

    Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

    Best regards,
    Irmina Blaszczyk
