African? Gadget-head? Apply Here!

AfriGadget is just getting off the ground. It is a team-blog, and at this time that means we need more people as part of our team.

We would particularly like some more authors who live in Africa on the team. No matter where you are located, you’ll see (and hopefully take pictures of) some intersting gadgets or mechanical wizardry. Even if you don’t have your own blog, or have never done anything like this before, you can easily get started here.

AfriGadget will cover these categories:

  • Gadgets (of course)
  • How-to’s
  • Books
  • Energy
  • Communication
  • Transportation
  • Water, Wood and Metal projects that are different than the norm

Lastly, this is not a full-time commitment. If anyone just happens to come across something that shows African ingenuity we’d love to have the link, pictures, or your write-up on it.

  1. Hi Hash, i hate to sound prudish, but i’m wondering what to make of one of your images–the “shocked” one…?

  2. Oh my! I didn’t see that one coming either.

    An explanation (as I remove the plugin for the time being…):

    I have set up a Flickr group for AfriGadget, but I don’t have any pictures in there yet. So, in my settings I had set the default tag for “MAKE”, as in MAKE Magazine. However, it appears that I’m getting a lot more than technology images… :)

    That being said, please help me populate the AfriGadget group on Flickr so that we can get some good images in the sidebar.

    Thanks for the heads up on this Solarhene.

  3. Update: I changed the tag to “gadget” until people start tagging their images “afrigadget”.
