This is a courtesy post so that you know most of my blogging this week is taking place at AfriGadget due to being one of the organizers for Maker Faire Africa coming up this weekend.
I’m also doing some work on the “FLAP Bag Project“, testing out modular, solar and light-equipped bags in Ghana, Kenya and Uganda with Timbuk2, Portable Light and Pop!Tech.
We’ve got a big release of Ushahidi coming up this week too, so keep an eye on the Ushahidi blog where I have another write-up coming.
Africa, Conferences, Pictures, Random Thoughts

Am a Kenyan guy, whose just finished his masters in intellectual property law and is interning with a independent news agency in geneva, switzerland covering IP related news, policies and issues. We are taking a keen interest in innovation in developing countries and the Make Faire event sounds like a great and very interesting story. I would like to do a story on this, would greatly appreciate if you got in touch with me at the email address

Am still pursuing you vigorously to try to get the Make Faire Story onto our news website (www.ip-watch.ch). Whereas I already have quite a bit of info from blogs around, i would still require confirmation of certain details from an authoritative source re you. I think it would be a great opportunity to highlight this stuff to an audience based in the capital of intellectual property in Geneva.
Other than that, being a Kenyan that is passionate about development back home, I have some interesting ideas that I needed to bounce off you. Am already in touch with people like Katana from UoN and Mwaura from Kiambu who are great young innovators. I hope once you’re thru with the Make Faire hussle you’ll get in touch, but hopefully not too late to make the story to our site old:)).
you can reach me via the above email
