We visited ITI (Information Technology Institute) where we discussed the possibilities of a game education track at ITI where the idea is for students, from all around Europe and Egypt, to apply for an in international computer game education at ITI with half a year in Copenhagen, Denmark. Students will be participating in actual computer game creation with different industrial roles such as project management, directors, programmers, animators, cg-artists, sound engineers, game designers, art directors, and tech directors.

Augmented Colors in Dubai
They have nothing to do with Augmented Reality, digital strategy or online communication. They are just really purdy flowers on a roadside in Dubai.

At the residence of the Danish Ambassador
The Ambassador of Denmark Mr. Christian Hoppe invited us to attend a speech on ‘Economic Prospects for Egypt’ By Guest Speaker, Dr. Magda E. Kandil, Executive Director and Director of Research, The Egyptian Center for Economic Studies.
This was a great experience and Adam asked her “When we go back to Denmark tomorrow which message should we bring with us?”
Dr. Magda had the following answer “Tell the Danish people that it isn’t as bad as what they see in on TV and that they should see Egypt as Potential foreign investment”.
The message is hereby passed on from Small.

Small makes it big in Campus Party Milenio
Four of our team members were invited to attend Campus Party Milenio 2011 in Granda Spain. And it was not not just travel, it's been travel through time. It was a trip back in time visiting the mesmerizing Alhambra palace and even walking down the streets of the old city where we could witness the great achievements of our ancestors. On the other hand, we also got a glimpse into the future taking part in Millennium Campus Party, with all the gadgets, robots, and innovations made by technology geeks from all over the world. Maged joined a round table discussion focused on the future of games and the project idea that Marwan submitted was shortlisted. We came back home with many friends and memories.

The highway to India
We recently visited Suez which of course is known for being the city at the end of the Suez Canal. Like the Pyramids and many other things in Egypt the Suez Canal is amazing. It opened in 1869 after 10 years of continuous work. Imagine digging this canal primarily by the use of shovels. It was 163 km long and 8 meters deep when it opened. Today its 193,3 km long, 24 meter deep and 205 meter wide. Wauv!
