invite all of us to send ideas, texts, information about inclusion and/or the
Includer. I will draw from them. The blog is a great opportunity
to link to our people and our websites. It shows up, for example, on
Google News. More generally, anything that you think the media doesn't cover
but should, please let us know, and we'll think of a way to link it to
inclusion and to the Includer, and certainly, to you.
I ask for lots of
photos, especially from our African participants. I assume that they
are in the Public Domain so that they are copyright-free and all can share
and use them freely without any restriction.
My parents sent me one month
of support ($2,500), and I expect another three months of support ($7,100)
from the Knight Foundation in the next month or so. This means that I
can and will go to Lithuania on October 14. I will work from there
until the New Year and then see what work I might find.
own dialogue with us all and with my parents has helped me find my way these
next few months, not simply in terms of what "I need", but
rather also what "we want". I ask us - I challenge us - to think how
we can be there for each other as we would like to, for that is a foundation
for a real economy.
think of Peter Ongele - can we think through what a mobile phone recharging
business might look like and what kind of loan or arrangement could get it
started? Peter, thank you for your great news that Graham Knight's DIY
Solar Panel is working fine. This is research - the verification of a
helpful fact - a great value for the $100 which I sent you - which I have
already benefited from in engaging prospects such as Stephen Wolfram - and
dependent on the personal integrity which you have demonstrated in your
letters. I ask now, please write us your thoughts and observations, and
think through what a business might look like - what would people pay? what
might a person earn? what persons might be like to pursue such a
business? and what is the amount of money and kind of support needed to
start such a business? what is a reasonable time in which to return that
money? Your answers will make this project a great success for us and
may open up many opportunities. We should also think hard with Peter
Burgess, what research you might do to study malaria bednet usage, what is
the smallest project we might start with? Perhaps even the deaf can
help if they think with their eyes and not their ears, they may see things
more objectively. I simply challenge your imagination. http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/mendenyo/message/2040 http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/mendenyo/message/2036 http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/mendenyo/message/2039
think of myself - who would like to invest themselves in establishing a help
center or other projects and how might we share resources? who might I
turn to if I need help or credit four months from now? and who can I
and others help in the meanwhile?
