African Hacker Resources

Here's a map of tech hubs in Africa. Things like hackerspaces, incubators, university technology centers, and more.

I hope this is not only a beacon to what's going on now but inspiration for others as well.

JetCityOrange is now on Pinterest (finally)

I've been reading about Pinterest for some time now. I realized it's something you have to do to get. Standing on the sidelines isn't playing the game.

If nothing else, Pinterest seems to be different not yet-another me too wanna be. So, I joined. Now JetCityOrange is on Pinterest.

Let the games begin!

Seattle Police Dept. & #OccupySeattle

As many of you know, I'm deep into the #Occupy movement. My early involvement with #OccupySeattle including but was not limited to videotaping arrests as a witness. Long story short, I edited out one instance of police action that was a.) not representative of the Seattle Police Department and b.) outside of acceptable behavior by a police officer IMHO. I filed a formal complaint through OPA even though the action wasn't directed at me. Today I have the opportunity to sit down with the officer in question along with a mediator. The happy conclusion? The officer and I shared openly and honestly. We watched the video I shot. Officer JL was honest, forthright, and professional, and for that, I thank him from the bottom of my heart.

Om mani padme hum!
