Ron Eglash and Ellen Foster:

"Another group that is socially connected to iSpace, albeit geographically distant, is the CoCreation Hub in Nigeria. Much like iSpace, they are dedicated to fostering local start-ups to bolster the local economy. They have a similar focus on skill-sharing and educational practices, mostly with open source hardware equipment such as the Raspberry Pi. Although originally focused on LEGO mindstorms for robotic educational practices, their group is considering a move to using Rapberry Pi in afterschool programming, since it is more affordable and malleable with an open source format (Bot Club). These groups are interested in fostering entrepreneurial practices through networking and skill-sharing, but they are also geared toward educational practices that are locally contingent and invested in how future local economies might grow and sustain themselves."
