Maker Faire Africa update

So you couldn’t get a visa to Ghana, misplaced your tickets to Accra, didn’t have an up-to-date yellow fever shot or for some other reason couldn’t make it to Maker Faire Africa…Well lose that sad face, the feed is just beginning. It always seems that during amazing events like Maker Faire, the online coverage doesn’t really get rolling until people get back to their home base and upload their photos and videos and write up their reflections.

Here are a few of the feeds that are worth watching regarding Maker Faire Africa. Afrigadget has had some great coverage of the lead up and goings on of the event. They are tagging their stories for easy retrieval with MFA09. Over at Twitter, the same tag turns up some great results.

Adam pointed us to the Maker Faire Africa pool on Flickr, and has picked out some great projects worth checking out.

Amy Smith’s research group from MIT has an annual month-long international conference, which this year coincided with Maker Faire Africa. You can check out the IDDS blog for more day to day info on their gathering.

Erik Hersman who usually blogs on White African, has been writing on Afrigadget during Maker Faire Africa, also has a great collection of photos from the event on Flickr.

If you see something else, please mention it in the comments. If you went to Maker Faire Africa, drop a line with more stories of the great work that you saw and did and of course, the MAKE Flickr pool is hungry for your photos and video of the event.
