This looks like fun. I have vague ideas on making home videos on "how to
build a house", "how to fix cars" and how to find work in Accra for
village youth leaving rural village homes and subsistence (no money)
farms. These will be transmitted by CDs in towns that have electricity
and across the net where there are physical phone lines in rural Ghana.
I want to be sure to be there. I hope that this happens at the next
Linux Mafia installafest, what 9/14/4? These videos will also be
interactively narrated in Ga, Twi, Hausa, and what ever other languages
(total 52 in Ghana) that may be spoken in addition to English by skilled
artisans that we can bring before our camera. This will also benefit
folks in California who may want coaching either in concrete block house
construction or in the African languages.
