Where Africa and Technology Collide!

Blogger and Techie Meetup in Kenya

Last night a number of bloggers, programmers and IT folks were able to get together for a little get together in Nairobi. Throughout the night about 20 people passed through the bar/restaurant where we met.

Among those present were bloggers Steve Mugiri from the Ntwiga blog, Juliana from Afromusing, Daudi Were from Mental Acrobatics. Riyaz Bachani, who organizes Skunkworks and the last BarCamp Kenya with Josiah Mugambi also came.

We had a great time over drinks and some Nyama Choma (beef and goat). A couple of us are off to a nearby orphanage today, then off to TED tomorrow.

Here’s a few pictures:

  7. Guys i am proposing that you guys have a cyber meeting up next. Considering the fact that many some of us Tech enthusiasts are based away from kenya but interested in goings on in Kenya. Why dont we have a webconference and exchange ideas. By the way i am Computer Science student and i love what you guys are doing and hope to add some input into your meetings if possible.

  8. I meant cyber meeting ignore the typos

  9. I just had to do that again God that sounded so illiterate. I guess it’s because of multitasking. I’m trying to do three things at the same time.

    Anyways guys i am proposing that your next meeting be a cyber meeting. Considering the fact that many of us Tech enthusiasts are based away from Kenya.

    I have been reading some blogs especially Tech blogs and they are fun.

    I guess this can be done from a cyber cafe with high speed internet.
    Just my thoughts !!!
