Hi Anne

Alex and I have been doing some really good stuff with the school kids today. Will need to talk to all of community about posting community pictures up, featuring the kids. The day has been a pretty mild 35, but will warm up by October

Hi Kozika ! Great to here from you. It is indeed a pioneering spirit that I operate within !!!!! ....for the education sector that is. We are involved in some amazing stuff over here at the moment .

Check for a list of all the other cool ways educators are trying to get their heads around how to use this technology.

We are on new grounds here in some of the most remote regions of Australia and we are certainly testing the ability of telcos to deliver their promises and to provide equitable access.

Your a friend in my mobology site. I look forward to your ongoing comments for the community up here. I'll be heading out Thursday if the snakes up here havent taken me away.

PS. the real photos are coming of the kids on the PDA's and phones when we have gained cultural and community approval....a powerful and neccesary part of this project .

We are in Mabu country.

Gary and Alex,
Look forward to seeing pictures of kids once approved by elders and community. Your project is so exciting - I am not sure how else there would be such instant connection between Mabu country and Sydney. We should set up a communication moblog for one of our groups and your group so they can see each other and make contact. I am still following up VIBEWIRE for the rest of the links Alex.
