One of the biggest treasures we have in this project is the ability to communicate our work through videos. @PatriziaStrino_b878's team has done great work in creating video content that really gets the message across.
However, I think it's a bit of a pity that we haven't exploited this content properly. Due to the nature of the platform, in order for the videos to be seen, they first have to be seen - and the view counts are all < 1000 for our videos, which considering the number of people that we've come into contact with, is way below what it could be.
Before we get to the event, I'd like to suggest that everyone in @scigaia and @SciGaIAChampions does the following :
- Subscribe to the channel : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGZFDCIoyvpW9bLjj0TywEQ
- Watch the About Sci-GaIA videos. Hey, you might even learn something.
- Pick the hackfest or workshop you were in, and share that video with your friends on twitter, facebook or wherever you hang out. Watch the video. Comment on it. Like it. Tell the world that it exists and that you're proud of it.

Our team will be coming to Pretoria for the final event to document the work that you've done, and how you're opening science in your institute, country, etc. I'm sure we've all got updates, epilogues, questions, addedums, to add to these stories. Tell us about it here - who knows, you may even become famous in real life
