I’ve been having altogether way to much fun. This weekend I decided to finally get off my rear and create AfriGadget – a website dedicated to showcasing African technological ingenuity. It was something KikuyuMoja and I had been talking about since November 2005, but had never done anything about.
It’s a “team blog”, meaning we need people to join our team so it’s not just us three… 🙂 It’s a fun, on-the-side, type of blog for us and we’d like to have some others who want to do the same. We’re looking for people who can upload pictures (it’s very visual) and show some great/fun/ingenious problem solving for Africans and usually by Africans.
Oh yeah, all authors will get a link back to their blog. That’s some serious linkage for when this thing blows up! (well, one can dream right?)
Anyway, AfriGadget was also my chance to try out a GREAT new blogging tool for WordPress that goes by the name Canvas. Those guys have built a tool that allows you to manipulate almost all the elements of your blog without having any PHP knowledge. I used their Kiwi theme and had a great old time. So, a special thanks to the Canvas team for giving me the excuse to do something fun.
