We use the BRCK

We already use BRCK. The Ushahidi team spends a lot of time on conference calls. It’s what you do when you have a team spread across seven time zones. Every Monday the whole team gets on a call, but today, as is often the case, the net was down in Nairobi.

Weekly: Iscram update, Art and Gifs

While we are pushing code left, right and center, we’ve been know to have a few smiles with our own Gif Star. It makes for fun reading on github.

Week 1 of the BRCK campaign

First off, a HUGE thank you to everyone who has tweeted, Facebooked and written about our BRCK project. An even bigger thank you to those who have supported us through some contribution to making the Kickstarter campaign a success.
