Science HackDay organised by Morris Mwanga, nerd, CTO at P2PCash and an MSc. student in Applied Computer Science at Kennesaw State University (he also tutors Calculus at the Kennesaw) USA, at the 88MPH space above BrewBistro on Ngong Road. For those of you who are techies, you probably know and have been to the place.
It was a good event. Main sponsorship came from Microsoft and Safaricom. Other sponsorships came from the Linux Institute of Professionals, GitHUB Social Coding, and ofcourse 88MPH whose space was being used for the sleepover 3-day Hackathon.
Host was Larry Madowo of NTV and www.larrymadowo.co.ke. Follow him here on Twitter.
Event started on Friday at 4pm and ended at around 6pm on Sunday. Winners in the different categories were as follows:
The BlackBerry Mini Keyboard is ultra portable and comes complete with a stylish convertible case that doubles as a stand for the tablet. In addition to a full QWERTY keyboard, it offers an integrated touchpad that allows users to navigate and control the BlackBerry PlayBook as easily as using the touch screen on the tablet itself. When the keyboard is active, the PlayBook tablet’s virtual keyboard remains hidden, freeing up 100% of the display for the task at hand.
“Whether you’re typing email, creating documents, surfing the web or using other apps, the BlackBerry Mini Keyboard and its integrated carrying case is an ideal accessory,” said James Poulton, Director, Advanced Accessories. Read more »
I am a photographer. I mean, I too am a photographer. Albeit a budding one. I surely cannot rank myself like the famous Kenyan greats like @truthslinger, @AmungaTheGreat or even James Quest. But I’m trying. I really am. So I’m doing this post for the love of photo-machines.
And I love my work. Well, most of it anyway. My weapon of choice is a Nikon D60 which serves me very well. That and a flash (SB-600) which can ‘throw’ light very far. It really does well. My work has never been published though; except on Facebook and sometimes on Twitter. You know what I would really love though, to get onto a platform like the Capetown Jazz Festival. That’s right! Have a great audience.
The CapeTown Jazz Festival happens on the 30th and the 31st of March of 2012. It is a festival like no other in Africa and plans to showcase some really great talent in the Arts. A must attend for all the Artsy people too.
The biggest interest for me though would be the Photography display at the festival.
They call it The Duotone Photographic Exhibition. Read more »
I just got the new BlackBerry Torch 2 to cop a feel of how owning a super-user device should be like and on the same day I got it, a friend of mine was jazzed at how easily I navigated on my device pretty much effortlessly. She therefore asked me to do a blog-post on how to navigate a BB successfully (successfully here meaning using intelligent shortcuts here and there instead of using the long, boring routes and procedures.)
This post has been done with the hope that you will get to see the fun side of using a BlackBerry.
Here are a few tips to guide you:
Shortcuts to get to know some information on your BlackBerry – When someone asks you either for your BB PIN or your BB Make and OS Version, simply go to a new text message of email. For getting your PIN just type “mypin” (without the quotes and immediately you put a space after the letter ‘n’, your PIN appears). To get the BlackBerry make and Operating System version type “myver”. Read more »

We’ve already unreservedly apologised to Mocality. We’re still investigating exactly how this happened, and as soon as we have all the facts, we’ll be taking the appropriate action with the people involved. “
