The latest class for the Mom3.0 Cafe Session covered Skype. The women as usual came expectant and were ready to learn something new.

Monique Ross, our very own She’s the Geek did the presentation and took the women through the history of Skype, its benefits and a step-by-step guide how to sign up to Skype.

All the women signed up to Skype and updated their profiles with pictures. Thereafter, they invited friends and searched for other friends and family on Skype. Jackie Biggs (one of the moms) was brave enough to do a presentation to the rest of the class on how to sign up to Skype. She did a good job of explaining and showing the rest of the class how to sign up. She was so good that she even won a prize!

It’s very exciting to watch how the women are growing more confident with social media and within themselves. Next week we having an international Guest Speaker chatting to the women via Skype. This will be the first time this medium is used for the Mom3.0 Cafe Session to have a guest speaker. Happy calling ladies!!

Lights on Lights off! May 4, 2010

Lights on Lights off!

While watching TV on this rainy evening at home the lights go off all of a sudden. Quite scary as I was sitting alone in the lounge. It took me exactly 10 seconds to react and get into survival mode. Firstly I picked up my iPhone and used the Flashlight App for light. Found the candles and lit them.

After being satisfied that there is sufficient light in the house and checking up on Marlon and Kate (both of them were on Skype calls with their laptops and 3G modems) I sat down and entertained myself with some Apps on my phone. Thinking back it might be a strange sight to see 3 people sitting in the dark in seperate rooms and each one doing their own thing using their preferred technology.

When the door bell rang, I jumped up. It was our next door neighbours, an elderly couple walking around in their pj’s finding out if our lights are also off. Very funny sight seeing this couple wearing long night gowns and carrying a flash light and some sort of portable light in their hands ringing the neighbours doorbells. One good thing came out of and that is that I got to finally meet my neighbours after living here 8 months.

Back in the house both Skype conversations were carrying on in the dark as if nothing happened. Isn’t technology amazing?

Even though our lights may be on one minute and off the next. Technology is always there and we can choose how to use it. So thank you 3G for keeping us connected tonight.
