When it comes to promoting African Technology & Innovation (African Ingenuity) focused initiatives in Africa, one organization/group stands out. The Maker Faire Africa crew deserves a standing ovation for the good jobs they started in Accra, Ghana during Maker Faire Africa 2009, MFA ’10 in Nairobi, Kenya and MFA ‘11 which is scheduled in Cairo, Egypt.
