Bassam Tariq and Aman Ali, two funny and talented guys behind "30 Mosques" who've contributed to Boing Boing as guestbloggers in the past, are raising funds for a new round of their ambitious "30 Mosques in 30 Days" project (which we've featured here before).
"Ramadan is starting again in three weeks and we're finishing our US tour by visiting the 20 states we missed in our last trek," says Bassam. "We have started a kickstarter page and have only seven days left for fundraising."

The trick is to arrange tiles to allow multiple leaps and to avoid the edge, from which the rabbit can’t come […]
Bamboo has lots of uses beyond just being panda food. Things like bikes, roads, scaffolding, and musical instruments are made from the fast-growing grass. But unless you are participating in a tropical-themed LARP, you probably wouldn’t want a shirt made from bamboo stalks. So why do bamboo bed sheets make any sense? Because yarn extracted from […]
If you want to work in tech, but don’t have any desire to code web apps to help businesses sell things to other business, you might want to consider a career in cybersecurity. Judging from the apparent complete infiltration of Russian hackers in American cyberspace, it seems fair to speculate that there’s a major shortage of […]
All moms are different. But all moms like getting flowers on Mother’s Day, and that’s a fact (not, however a fact we can document in any fashion.) Instead of getting chewed out for forgetting to call her on the second Sunday of May, you can take care of it ahead of time with Teleflora’s flower […]
