So it’s the final day of AfricaSource. One of the professionally most exciting events I have attended in the past 18 months is coming to a close. All we have to do, as we wrap up, is burn about 60 CD’s with digital photos from a number of participants. It’s 21:00 in Okahandja, Namibia at the NIEd facilities where the evnt has being going on since mnday morning. I arrived monday afternoon, to a buzzing event, packed with African practitioners and geeks.
There is much to be said, and little opportunity to say it. I have been busy all week with something like 4 or 5 sessions as a facilitator or co-facilitator, and the imperative to party in the interim periods. My laptop has been taking over by the impressive burning team, who have spent the past 2 days trying to put together the NGO-in-a-box package for all participants. The network has been slow to the point of frustration, and my inability to sit for longer periods of time has also been a limitation.
So consider this an introduction, a preface to some larger, longer ebtries in the days and weeks to come. If your interest has been piqued have a look at Cosmic Seriosity Balance, or look at the Tactical Tech page for AfricaSource.
