First of all, I changed the theme of the blog, because I am getting really excellent comments from people but I thought it was too difficult to read the comments and to leave comments with the old theme. This way you can just click on the word “Go to comments” or “Leave a comment” which is a bit more self-evident to design-ignorant people like me. Hope you like it.
Next, I had a bad day today, but I’m very happy to report that something has raised my spirits. Namely, Jake Porway from Data Without Borders and I have been corresponding, and I’ve offered to talk to prospective NGO’s about data, what they should be collecting depending on what kind of studies they want to be able to perform, and how to store and revise data. It looks like it’s really going to happen!
In fact his exact words were: I will definitely reach out to you when we’re talking to NPOs / NGOs.
Oh, and by the way, he also says I can blog about our conversations together as well as my future conversations with those NGO’s (as long as they’re cool with it), which will be super interesting.
Oh, yeah. Can I get a WOOHOO?!?
