Have you lived or worked in a developing country? What did you learn?
that the United Kingdom is far more like a 3rd world nation than one could ever imagine! Don't judge a country by its demographics or its once grand empires.
Please describe the skills and abilities you have that you think will be useful for this project.
i am a highly skilled fabricator/ designer in a variety of materials and applications. not having had a formal education has been a major factor in the development of an open mind and an uncommonly high level of resourcefulness . I always read the enclosed directions first!

Hi, Iris,
Welcome, and thank you so much for joining us! (If you've been here a while I apologize for my lateness - I'm supposed to receive an email when someone joins but apparently it's not working.)
You have quite a background. I'm sure that the Piclopedia team will receive great benefit by your presence.
If you wish to see where the main nexus of activities right now, please go to http://sites.google.com/site/piclopedia/Home. That's where we're starting to build the actual site and are slowly migrating the materials from this site and the piclopedia.org sites, while also building the icon-oriented search capability and creating examples of universal design plans/designs.
How did you hear about Piclopedia? What is your specific interest? Can you see a role for yourself?
Welcome aboard!
Best regards,
Daniel Wolf
