Cairo Hackerspace

3-Day-Maker-Space

I’m in Cairo. It’s quite an exciting time to be here!

Hopes are very high here after their “Freedom Revolution”, even with the military still in power.

I mainly came here to be part of Maker Faire Africa (which was this past weekend), and was funded by a Kickstarter campaign to make it all happen. Together with the brand new Cairo Hackerspace, we set up a 3-Day hackerspace at the Faire, which was way wondeful!

In case anyone is interested in more info, I created 2 blog posts today on the Noisebridge blog:

One was about my take on the night of violence here in Cairo tonight:

The other is about Maker Faire Africa, the new Cairo Hackerspace, and the Hackerspace Meetups me and Bilal are helping to organize:

Cheers,
