Yes, there was a PyDev last week; I was pre-occupied with other matters to post about it. Anyway, this Labor Day (US) edition continues to shine spotlights on #BlackGirlMagic coders here and around the world. I can never get enough of them, so shouldn’t you.
H/T: @_theplugdaily. It does help that their infrastructure is much newer, therefore less adverse to technology.
There are times some of us forget there is a whole another world out there, and it needs some attention.
As some of you know, I have had a keen interest in technology and have for my over 20 years in the Web world, and years of BBS (Bulletin Board Systems) such as Wildcat, CompuServe, and others. This project that comes out of Kenya, is different and more applicable to its intended users than those that some multinationals brag about and tote to help NGOs (Non Governmental Organizations). A ruggedized tablet with built-in connectivity and local encyclopedic storage from Wikipedia (a personal fave) is just what the doctor ordered for the rest of us.
There is hope for humanity after all. Now all we need is some of this technology to locate #Bringbackourgirls and end the terrorist organization that is Boko Haram.
