Building Digital Libraries in Indian Slums

Many children in Indian slum schools never see a computer. Their homes don’t have one, and their schools don’t have one. Their learning is based on memorization and they are not trained on practical technical skills. Three AMAZING high school girls – two in the United States and one in Hong Kong – are on a mission to change that. Aishwarya Suresh, Megha Sreekanth, and Naina Mishra are 16-year old…

Sonya Saturday, Cartoonist and Windows Insider

The Windows Insiders Program – A Perspective

“Shhhh, let’s not leak our hard work” – a maxim that was shared by Microsoft not very long ago during the Windows 8 era. This maxim is now resigned to the history books – as Microsoft has become more open in every possible way – open sourcing many of their development technologies but also more significantly with the creation of the Windows Insiders Program. Step forward until 2014, and enter…

Andre Da Costa Personal Computing Hero, Microsoft MVP, & Windows Insider

It takes dedication and true passion to become a Microsoft MVP–even more so if you live in a context where technology and internet access can be scarce. Andre Da Costa, the one and only MVP in Jamaica, describes himself as a “technological late bloomer.” The day he’ll always remember: When his mother brought home his first computer, a Zenith GT workstation with MS-DOS and Lotus Word Pro, back in 2001.…

Windows 10: Co-Created

Hi everyone, my name is Adam. I’m 23 years old and live in New Zealand. For as long as I can remember, I have loved technology, what it could do and imagining all the wondrous things I come up with on the computer. Of course being quite young back then, that meant creating drawings in Microsoft Paint, playing 3D pinball & playing with ClipArt in Microsoft Works. It had always…
