So... we're going to Ghana.

Oh how I have wanted to post this!
No, it isn't just a dirty rumor,

Red Button Design are officially going to Accra, Ghana for Maker Faire Africa!

In true RBD style, flights, visas, inoculations and other logistical necessities have been arranged in less time than is theoretically possible, and we're off to Ghana in 72 hours thanks to some amazing ongoing support from some genuinely fabulous people.

Pleased for us, but still not sure what MFA 'really' is at its heart? Well now that it's all finalised, check out this great interview with Emeka Okafor (Maker Faire Africa co-founder) speaking about who and what will be at the event, recorded for the BBC.

Now you've seen that, I know you're as excited as we are and you'll not want to miss a stitch of gossip!
Here is how you keep ahead of the game:

and we'll be posting photographs to Flickr ... many more details to follow!
