Open Source systems and the community running behind these have always been something interesting to dive in. As part of paving my path in those communities, I decided to have a word with one of the Open Source Developers in my Home Country namely Loganden Velvindron, Logan; a friend of mine – even if we met in person only once during a workshop on the MariaDB Database Management System. Views expressed in this ‘mini-interview’ represent the views of Logan only. Other mini-interviews similar to this one will follow. 🙂
Well well; Good morning everyone. Live from ‘Le Bed’. Am writing this article since sleep is late for its rendez-vous today. Well, Ish Sookun posted on his blog some hours ago about a link to an online game themed with a political message from a specific party running up for the 2014 General Elections in Mauritius. Yes, you heard it right, An Online Game.
As it can be noticed since the very start of the rise in political events and scoops this year – alliances, parliament on holidays and all – Mauritius has seen a rise in the use of Social Media, the Internet and Tech 2.0 as never before. Web TVs with live broadcast and professional video-edits is The tool of the moment with Radio Stations having their own Web TVs; a semi-private-tv-station culture using Youtube mainly as platform to stream, spread and share their media, the dive in Online Radio for a Newspaper Group, the extensive use of the Facebook platform, and now the newcomer to the list; That Online Game.
The following is an analysis of the defunt gov.mu (Website of the Government of Mauritius back then), by Nadim [Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ilearn.mu ] , that I am publishing with his expressed permission. – No political intent behind same 🙂 Have a nice time reading.
Please note that this analysis was carried out in 2013 and was never published. I got my hands on same, some hours ago and asked for permission to publish it.
Some days ago, while browsing through backup stuffs; I came across this article. The latter being the first article I ever published on my Wetpaint page and on my HTML-Only-Blog. Was quite -or rather; really – primitive those times..
Writing this post ; I would also like to thank all those who helped me learn lots in the ICT field,
teachers, friends, colleagues, passer-by, I cannot list you all here;
but my sincerest thanks go to you 🙂
Thank You very much for sharing your knowledge and your patience. May God Bless you always !!
EDIT: This is actually not the first one; I published another one but cannot find it.
