Appfrica Labs: Building an Army With Thumb Drives

Solution: I’m installing Damn Small Linux and LAMP on USB Thumb Drives and giving them to the kids I work with, to allow them to work from anywhere, as long as a computer is available.

The Problems: Most East African students lack credit cards (because they aren’t available to the majority of the public period) and so they can’t buy their own web server space. School hours limit their working hours. Overcrowded computer labs render software security measures and ongoing projects rather useless as kids have to move from computer to computer….whatever is available. Furthermore, internet is sporadic and unreliable…even when the school labs are available. Internet cafe’s are expensive and not always a viable option.
