Thursday chat and train as Worknets "help room" online assistants
- I invite us all to chat tomorrow, Thursday, October 29, starting at 9:00
am New York time, 13:00 am London, 16:00 Nairobi. Come to our chat room
I will be participating at a meeting in Lithuania and explaining how we
can use Internet tools (like chat, wiki, emails) to help people with
their projects. I want to motivate our team in Lithuania that they can
learn how to use such tools and that they can truly be helpful. Your
participation will make for concrete examples and help me get my points
For example, Fred Kayiwa is working as an online assistant at our chat
room. Today he started helping to move some Lithuanian pages from our
Worknets wiki http://www.worknets.org/wiki.cgi?Values to our Lithuanian
language wiki http://www.ms.lt/lt/wiki.cgi?Vertyb%C4%97s It's
interesting that he can do that even though he doesn't know Lithuanian!
So this is a good example that Lithuanians can help other people, too,
even if they don't know English.
I ask us all to please visit our chat room when you are online. Sign in
and say hi and a line or two about what you are doing (just like
Twitter). And please let me and Fred and Sasha teach you how to help
with our tasks http://www.worknets.org/wiki.cgi?Tasks and likewise
please give us your tasks that we can help with. In this way, we will
have a vibrant help room which will make a sound foundation for our own
"economy of dreams" (of helping each other), but also working as teams
to make a living and make Minciu Sodas, Worknets strong along with all
of our projects.
Ananya Guha has a great project of writing poems for children.
http:/We can publish them in English and local languages for viewing on
DVD players, digital cameras, mobile phones and that supports Ricaro's
endeavors and Josephat Ndibalema's as well. Ananya, if you can join us
online at our chat room then we can likewise help more with your lovely
Proscoviour Vunyiwa is an example of a person who I'd like to encourage
to participate more. You are very skilled and we would greatly benefit
and you could teach others, too!
Samwel Kongere has written about his dream for a fish pond. We can
respond by looking for microcredit solutions, and by learning from Jeff
Buderer and other about Integrated Farm and Waste Management. Jeff, can
you advise? Let's share our dreams!

Thanks Andrius, I had spoken to Samuel Kongere on phone. If I will be
through with my exams which i will be starting late November and finish
early December, I will travel to Kisumu on 8th so that we can chat the
way forward on how we can work together. I also do carpet weaving on
readily available material and I believe this skill can help improve the
life of someone. I appreciate your encouragement and getting time to
read my articles. God bless you.
My dream is a community sustainable agriculture. I've a dream to keep
myself fed and enable about 772 villagers access Tilapia their staple
food, source of protein, commercial earner and make it sustainable to
our livelihood. The people have been depending on this fish trade for
decades but due to too much pressure of famine, destruction of
vegetation and fishing pressure. I really dream of an integrated fish
farming in a FishPond. My preliminary finding shows that it can be
started with Kenya shillings 130,000 (about 1750 USD) which can run to
close at 200,000 or so (about 2700 USD) to make it sustainable and
transferable to the next generation. After several consultations with my
comrades in Networks in Mendenyo, Rusinga island, the Kawala Women
development group who appear on a picture in my profile in MS wiki,
Udogo youth Development, YUVA (Youth for Unity and Voluntary Actions),
RIDFI (Rusinga Island Youth Development Forum Initiative) all registered
with the government and based in Rusinga Island in the New district of
Mbita! We are working on 'A Living hope is desire'. If sustainability in
Agriculture can sustain livelihood, then Enviromental friendly will be a
long vested venture amongst dreams to create water catchment. My hope is
to have specialist volunteers locally and internationally to aid this
dream. A volunteer house can be constructed to save expenses, logical

I find it hard to find connection between wiki pages I made. I feel this is counter productive, its like thinking thoughts but not keep them together. Its like forgetting them, like they have never been thought. I think this is not good, or at least its not useful to me. I would like to have some system where I could know which are pages made or modified by me. Or eventually make subpages like there is for example: EarthTreasury / AnanyaSGuha.
Maybe I could make a subwiki SashaMrkailo / Beekeeping SashaMrkailo / Linux and so on.
Sasha, that's a good idea and I can make such a report! Thank you for your ideas for improvements. Andrius
