Thanks for the photos go to Dr. Mogens Petersen, whom I met on a flight to Kisangani and who became a friend.
The story is mostly made up. There is a Hotel Kisangani, but as far as I know, Samuel and Roger have never had the opportunity to read Wired, nor, probably, have they ever heard of cloud computing and nanoassembly. I'd bet good money, however, they think every day about gettin' outta there.
