Is Facebook secure? Read this carefully

I have always had this question. No matter how much doubts we have we keep on using it. Because people are so addicted to it and for some it has become a way of life.

But you can always keep good manners while in Facebook, and protect your identity.

I was thinking late one night, when uploading a video to Facebook, and seeing my 300+ friends on the list.

What if all my firends, and friends of my friends, and friends of their friends.....upload videos? Well, that is exactly what is happening, though we give very limited attention to Facebook, Youtube etc.

And to think that many of my peers are downloading movies everyday ! makes us to think are we been rude to this wonderful commodity > bandwidth. Everybody has to share what is… Continue

The emphasis should be on the whole system, not on how to tackle a particular disease.

He compared the current global health system to a water system in a city. The city is investing on a state of the art water purification system so… Continue

Capacity Building in Resource Mobilization for telecentre.org Network Partners

Posted on April 22, 2008 at 7:01 0 Comments

“Fund raising is a long shot, so make plans of like for 3 years, so that you can be realistic”



This was the message given by Major General Surath Sandhu to the participants at the Resource Mobilization Planning session workshop. This statement sums up the importance of planning for resource mobilization. Normally organizations expect the resources to be raised in short period of time, but they are not aware about the serious thought process that should go behind this.



As… Continue

Ayubowan Machiang!!! ;-))

I miss Sri Lanka a lot, really a lot... In the last weekend my friends with who I spend the most amazing time in Lanka were visiting me in Warsaw. Old time just came back and we start to feel exactly the same how it was on the Island. Really something amazing... Global Sri Lankans Re-Union :-D

I all the time dreaming about coming back, but many things is happend here in Europe so my trip back to Asia is getting postponned one time after another. This time I am considering October 2008 to come to Sri Lanka and after that visit check the things in India (Ruffina) and Nepal (Allen)...

But "what to do??" :-)

We start a huge amount of work as a Steering Comiitee of Telecentre-Europe.org so will see what will happend.

I wish for you and your family, all the best!

P.S. Please let me know what you think about those concepction of sending one of my volunteer trainer to Sri Lanka, as a part of pilot implementation of our Global Volunteer Exchange Program that I right down here

Hi Meddie,

I am pretty convinced that this will work well..I mean for me this is super fast comparing to the experience I had with Mambo and Jhoomla...I like the smooth functioning and potential on networking of this...I think we can start for Asian leaders on this...I am on board !

Isura, hi

I am wondering how ning is going for you. I considered making a version for telecentre network leaders in Asia as a place we can share experiences and follow up on Bangkok training.

I got a feel that internet connectivity would not allow you guys to enjoy it well... that its too slow to down load.

Is it the case for you?
