Two amazing friends of mine started Technology Will Save Us, an organisation with a truly great purpose - teaching people young and old, tech savvy and technophobe, to hack tech and use old tech for good and in so doing, avoid adding to the world's disgusting landfills. And now they have a store nestled within London's famous Rough Trade record store, where you can buy their kits and products (check the vids above). This stupid iPad app won't let me put a link in, for some reason... But google Technology Will Save Us and check em out. Super rad.
So I've been neglecting my blog lately and for that I must apologise. My head and heart still spend most of their time on the playa in the Nevada desert and the rest of me, well, is running around trying to soak up as much awesomeness in SF as I can before I head back to South Africa next week. The last 24 hours have been particularly good ones. Saw some long-lost friends, did a little shopping, hit an amazing Picasso exhibit (I don't think I've ever seen so many in one place) and ended up at the 12th annual SF Electronic Music Festival - no doubt in a bid to revisit some of the mood from Burning Man. And while it didn't even come close, it was a welcomed distraction from the foggy, freezing streets outside. Streets that this morning were filled with shiny happy people on their way to the thousands of coffee shops in this city. I, of course, hit my local fav: Cup-A-Joe. Ordered my fav breakfast, hopped on the free WIFI and well, here I am trying to make up for my relative anonymity these past few weeks. To those of you who've sent mails asking wtf? I have read them and I promise to be more attentive to hmm... :)
