Episode 01 - Bilal Ghalib - Everything is a prototype.


On a sunny morning, as they usually are in San Francisco, I visited Bilal for a delicious breakfast and we set down to discuss some of his past experiences, life perspectives and future projects.


I met Bilal, back in 2012, on a Google Hangouts call for Gemsi project - a group of people Bilal organized to promote and build hackerspaces in the Middle East. We stayed in touch ever since and met on a few occasions in San Francisco and Berlin. Bilal is one of the most spontaneous and outgoing people I have ever met. It's my pleasure to reconnect with him and bring our conversation to you, on this blog.
