World Relief Baltimore visit

Sam, Shayne and James travel to Baltimore, MD to visit Sam Grottis and several global program directors at the world headquarters of World Relief. It was a wonderful road trip. We had a series of interesting discussions. We showed them the film and the software. They are excited about the possibilities that such a system offers. Later, we walked around the cobble stone streets of Fell's Point in Baltimore and had a tasty lunch at Duda's Tavern (they have great chili and crab cakes).

Google doesn't select our contest entry

After a couple months of effort with help from some friends and eager anticipation, we found out that Mabulu Mobile was not selected as one of the 50 finalists in Google's Android Developer Challenge. Maybe we'll compete in the next ADC this fall.

Google contest entry

The prototype and documentation is uploaded to Google at 2:56 am on April 15th. Had it taken more than 4 more minutes to upload, we would not have been on time and would likely have been eliminated.

"ReliefSoft" becomes "Mabulu"

"ReliefSoft" becomes "Mabulu" -- a name that better represents our goals and philosophy.
