Good grief. What a week. Let me try to catch up. Three iPhones repair/attempted unlocks and a hard drive recovery. A half-day trip to Kampala for Declan’s dentist appointment. Torrential downpours in Jinja. Getting stuck in the mud taking Declan to school. Working a lot (A LOT) on the Pelican Pi documentation and website. Joining the World Possible team for a staff conference call. Making travel arrangements for an unexpected speaking gig.
The “Pelican Pi” idea is really, REALLY taking off thanks to Daniel and Lisa. Their latest demo was in Rwanda at the ICT4AG conference and the ICT4AG Hackathon. I find it ironic that Hackers for Charity was presenting vicariously through Daniel and Lisa all the way in Rwanda. And they rocked it.
There, they met with Hon Jean Philbert Nsengimana, who is the Rwandan Minister of Youth and ICT. Daniel spent a few moments showing the Minister the Pelican Pi, and Lisa captured some video footage that’s a must-see. At around 2:45, Daniel grabs the Minister by the elbow, and the Minister is quite annoyed (it seems) but after a while, he warms up and eventually pulls out his iPad to try out the Pelican. It was cool to see. Check it out:
Here are some photos of Daniel and Hon Jean Philbert Nsengimana:
