Please excuse us. We keep promising to blog about things – our amazing meeting with the Social Media Exchange, our partnership with Demotix, Meedan, and Sawt Ashabab, our experiences putting together a team in Lebanon, heck, even our frustrations here – and we just haven’t done what we’ve promised!
We’re a very small team – there are two of us on holiday from ‘the real world’ to work full time on this, another three with full time jobs who can only work nights, and as of the past few days, some new friends whom we’ve convinced to donate their time and efforts. We’ve been so busy getting the site live, getting the work done, all these things – that we just haven’t had the time to record our efforts.
This is a disappointment – there’s a lot that can be learned from putting thoughts and experiences in writing. It helps clarify to us what we are doing as well as helping other people understand. In fact, it really should have been a fundamental part of our project, as it adds a level of transparency to our work and preparations. That said, we’ll be working to try and update live tomorrow and add a personal Sharek voice – to the events of the day. We’re looking forward to doing this together with you all.
