That may sound a little harsh but let’s face it – there are not a lot of people doing really original things out there these days.

After my rant about how the only thing (tech) anyone should be doing is building a cache box OR helping Mikel map stuff, it is not surprising to find that the only really super cool/useful thing that has been done recently is the Map Kibera project by Mikel and his team.

If you are in Nairobi be sure to stop by the mapping party that Mikel is throwing at UNICEF.
