Jordanian Developer Harlem Shakes Your Website
If you haven’t seen the Harlem Shake meme, you’ve been working too hard on your startup.
It’s not just that Lebanese incubator Seeqnce made a video; the Harlem Shake has also become a protest method; last Thursday, around 70 Egyptian protestors performed the dance on the doorsteps of the Muslim Brotherhood headquarters in the capital Cairo.
Others have cropped up in Saudi Arabia, Morocco, and even among youths miming a war in Syria that stops once they do the dance.

Monir Abu Hilal, a founding member of the OaSys team, which won third place in the software design competition in Microsoft’s Imagine Cup 2011, now works as a software developer at Microsoft in Dublin, Ireland.
