For this August's South Bay Dinner Social we will be treated with a presentation by Craig Michael Lie Njie, "Lie" (The Gambia, 05-08). Lie was recently recognized as a Champion of Change at the White House on July 23rd. This event highlighted extraordinary leaders in transformative civic hacking and civic engagement.

Please RSVP if you plan on attending, Christa Peacock peacockis[at]hotmail.com

In early June Lie and Amran Gaye, a colleague Lie met during his Peace Corps Service in The Gambia, participated in the National Day of Civic Hacking to address a Peace Corps Innovation Challenge submitted by a PCV in South Africa. The challenge was to develop an SMS notification system that clinics could use to notify local communities when critical supplies had been delivered. In response to this challenge Lie, Amran and an international team of American and Gambians developed Medlink. MedLink's SMS, Web, and Email tools enable those in need to request medical supplies and services.

As an added treat Amran Gaye is currently visiting the Bay Area and will participate in the presentation.

We need a fairly accurate count of people in order to reserve a private room, so please RSVP Christa Peacock as soon as possible.
