GeekFests - they're like buses: nothing happens for ages and then they all come together.
GeekFest Beirut takes place next Saturday the 29th May 2010 at the uber-funky Art Lounge in Beirut - with the Maniachi in charge it's going to be a blast - and all the details are here on the justasfunkyasthevenue GeekFest Beirut website. You can also, of course, follow @GeekFestBeirut on Twitter (or just do a search for the #GeekFest hashtag).
ArtStuf in Beirut is going to include showcases displays and things from, Abir Ghattas, Moshumi Nandy, Elyse Tabet and Dreamchaser while TechnoCases come from GeekFest early adopter Nokia and Telephone.com.
GeekFest Beirut's going to be televised thanks to Amer Tabsh from FTV Social, photographed by Fady Nammour and live tweeted by LAU Social. Gotta say a thank you to moodeef.com for hosting the website!
CAIRO HERE WE COME!
On the very same night, over in Cairo's Zamalek, GeekFest Cairo 1.0 will be taking place! UNorganised by Mohammad Mansour (@TripleM) with a little help from GeekFest's designer-in-chief, Naeema Zarif (@Naeema), GeekFest Cairo will be taking place at El Sawy Culture Wheel thanks to the generous involvement and participation of Ziad W. Aly (@ZiadAly).
GeekTalks in Cairo will include:
Social Media for Social Change
Visual Political Aggregation: The modern Propaganda
Improvised Inspirational Speech
There's more planned as well. So now we've got GeekFest Dubai, Beirut, Amman and Cairo! Whoever thought that a cup of coffee with @saadia would lead to this?
