Rekorder II | 10/23/2017 , 18:00

Workshop with Jeff Maina (BRCK, Kenya)

In this two day workshop Jeff Maina from the Kenyan Company BRCK presents their outdoor hardware router SuperBrck. The device is a robust, self-powered router that provides open Internet service and serves locally cached content. It is water proofed and has a battery for operating up to 10 hours without external power. With the help of the device they are setting up a free public WiFi network called Moja. Jeff Maina will present their visions, ideas and solutions. He will work with the participants on ideas of developing infrastructures and technical solutions based on the need of people in ones own community instead of just embracing the concepts of the big tech companies.

In cooperation with florida creative lab.

Workshop day 1: 23.10. 18:00–22:00 
Workshop day 2: 24.10. 17:00–22:00
