    I just got an email from a member of the Nigerian parliament’s cousin asking for help getting his family’s vast collection of Arduino projects to the next World Maker Faire. It seems they need my banking information to avoid some kind of nasty taxes from customs. Sounds fun!

      Seriously though I am amazed at some of the creations and kludges coming from Africa. If necessity is the mother of invention then that continent is the midwife.
