Flying visit to Adelaide. Arrived in the dark, meetings & the dreaded "networking" and now on the way back to the airport. Observations - it's very flat, very quiet. Rad. Oh and the second most digitally excluded state or territory in Aus, in case you're interested.
Earlier today, we went into the heart of KL to do our data collection for a grant under #MCMC . #DigitalInclusion amongst the elderly is an issue that many of us are unaware of and we're here to unearth them. Here's a very light moment we shared when the topic ventured into how their children were impatient in teaching their parents or grandparents how to use their S8's and iPhone7's, leading them to say that since then, either they don't bother to learn or simply technology's too far ahead it's difficult to catch up. No. 1 on their list? IF FAMILY MEMBERS WERE PATIENT ENOUGH TO TEACH THEM, MAYBE THEY WON'T BE THAT TECH-ILLITERATE. 😥🤔😬 betul tak? #UiTMMassComm#UnusualThingsKeepUsAlive

Have you heard about Project Common Voice launched by Mozilla? This is an absolutely brilliant initiative that helps to build open source voice database anyone can use to build voice recognition app. We all can contribute by donating our voices (all accents are welcome!) at https://voice.mozilla.org/, but there’re also some tickets available for those who want to help out with some bugs and other technical issues (here: https://goo.gl/egv5tF). 😊
In other news, we just wanted to thank $npm run build for the thrill each time we're getting a mysterious undocumented error! 👩💻👨💻 Picture very much related. 😂

Reposting photo from @pcsforpeople, a great org doing important work on #DigitalInclusion . I took this photo six years ago today in Duluth. I remember it being a brutally cold day, but our event was a fantastic success and a lot of low income families in the area went home with new computers loaded with useful software. Strong technical skills have opened a lot of doors to me--everyone should have those opportunities. Consider them for your year-end giving.

When it comes to the internet, the old adage "No such thing as a free lunch" once again proves true. You might not think you're paying to use Google, Facebook or countless other websites and services, but you are — not with money but with data. And to those corporations, that's even more valuable.
