  • Or, you guys could ship them to the robotics non-profit I started in Uganda.

    You’ve supported Fundi Bots before, and in fact, Linz Craig has taught down here with us (sorry for name dropping, Linz!)

    Seriously though, it would help reach tens of thousands of students, and you’d still come out on top. Heck your red boxes are a prominent feature in our trainings.

    Let me know if we can work something out.

    It would seriously suck to see these go to waste!

  • Linz, like I said in an earlier comment, it was an absolute pleasure working with you and introducing you to Ugandan culture. What we started in Gulu is just the tip of the ice-berg. We’re planning so much more and we’d be honoured if you could join us once again on one of those sessions.

    Arnold, Victor, Rachel and Sylvia send their regards.

    Cheers!

    King.

  • Lindsay, it was an honor and a pleasure learning from and working with you. What we started in Gulu will change lives for years to come.

    I am Looking forward to the next time we get together for some more hardware hacking.

  • Thankfully, no. Our traffic is extremely bad and you have to be alert at all times. We drive on the left here, so almost all cars have right-hand steering. And we had an extremely competent driver.

  • As one of your biggest fans, and a tech-bootstrapper, this story is very inspiring. Congratulations on your growth and success, and many thanks for the support you guys have shown our Fundi Bots robotics program down in Africa.

    Wishing you guys many more years of awesome!
