Wow, this takes my back to my early days of refining my web skills, learning coding and joining the web community in promoting CSS ~ how time flies… from those days, I will forever remember Dave Shea and Molly Holzschlag, alongside many others, and thank them for guiding my path into web standards and the beauty of CSS :)
In his blog post “10 Years” – Dave revives this concept, asking for new submissions to now work with more advanced designs – exciting & fun!!! :) Who wouldn’t want to contribute to this…
Shimon Schocken and Noam Nisan developed a curriculum for their students to build a computer, piece by piece. When they put the course online — giving away the tools, simulators, chip specifications and other building blocks — they were surprised that thousands jumped at the opportunity to learn, working independently as well as organizing their own classes in the first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). A call to forget about grades and tap into the self-motivation to learn.
Recently charity: water, Authentic Jobs, and Smile Generation travelled to Ethiopia together. Cameron Moll, founder of Authentic Jobs, and his wife were privileged to be part of that trip. And two very special guests came along, as well.
There are times when you just have to love people and their wonderful initiatives for others :)
This is when Twitter shines a light through the mist of noise with stories like this - please make sure to read this article about an OLPC action, giving children in Ethiopia thousands of XO laptops and observing their very first experience with computers.
