What we did on the trip - a video update

Hey peeps! It's been a while. This is Adam Funk posting this time.... I'm the mysterious man who filmed the trip. We've done some awesome stuff, so much more than we expected. Maker Faire Africa was wonderful. Mitch, Bilal, Manal, and others all taught wonderful workshops. 

After this project, however, we were whirled all over, to Beirut, Dubai, Hong Kong, and then Shenzhen, working on more things and getting footage. This has been incredible, and we've got so much more to show you than we could have imagined. We'll be realeasing more footage and photos, and working on a full length documentary. 

I also apologize for the delay, we've had a number of technological issues. A bit of this update is filmed on my phone - my camera got stolen in an airport - plus Bilal's iPhone got stolen, his hard drive crashed on the last day, the hard drive he bought in Hong Kong failed after I got back, my SD card slot in my laptop wasn't working, and my audio recorder failed when we were filming the update. But we've got things under control now, and we're up and running. Keep an eye out for more to come. :)
