@aral I'm indeed raising the issue ... let's see how open they are for debate. It's so horribly institutionalised and pre-decided, but at least I feel like I need to raise local awareness.
@aral contentwise, watching the stream right after reading my children's school will be "handing out" chromebooks next schoolyear couldn't have been timed better.
@aral it's the first time I can join after coming back from a 6-month month stay in Senegal, looking forward to it.

K's Choice "Believe" was released in 1998, I was 15 years old.
Only yesterday, the lyrics to that song seemed to sink in properly.
Holding on and on to Theories of prosperity.
I refuse to buy into the latest 'playground' pop-it / simple dimple hype.
But I do enjoy finding these diy crafted youtube based alternatives around the house.
Spent the afternoon / evening putting together a Rapsberry Pi Zero "High Quality" webcam. I ended up using the 'showmewebcam' project, which - after the usual diy maker issues - works perfectly! https://github.com/showmewebcam/showmewebcam
Started a 3d print this morning, had some cooling issues ... here I am printing cooling ducts for the printer before retrying the initial print. #makerlife
Glad to see Offscreen back. One of the magazines I really enjoy in all aspects, article lenght, look and feel ... even the smell. #xp
TIL when using Arduino as ISP ... don't connect to the hosts's 'reset' pin but actually read the code.
The default is to connect pin 10 on the host board to the reset ICSP pin on the target board. #xp
In hindsight, I totally understand the local people's reaction. Everyone is, probably, concerned about getting their children to school on time. Yet, I have the choice to take the motorbike and drive my daughter to school. By doing so, I only confirmed white privilege ... which I'm really regretting now. It feels like reality just slapped me in the face with a concrete brick.
I once again made a fool of myself, as I probably should just have left my daughter waiting for the bus with the other children.
Obviously the bus arrived 5 minutes after we left with the motorbike.
