Everyone, everywhere, loves a good story

# Shalom,

…from a little café in Tel Aviv, fresh off a week flying across South AfricaKenya, and Sierra Leone. We’re running on crushed coffee-beans and wacky Pong hacks and thinking, whoa, if this is the beginning of the story, what’s next?

We have nine days left – SHARE US (Twitter or FB), and we can make Kano with more projects, more languages, and an AMAZING robotics expansion kit.

# The future

If we can keep pushing toward that magic $2 million mark, dreams like Bluetooth in the keyboard and a whole new web-maker Kano level will become feasible. Wherever we end up, we can thank the stars, the robots, the Raspberry Pi, the Linux kernel – but mostly, you guys. Your story, and your kits, are in worldwide motion. Nine days to see how far we can go…
