REMOVING BARRIERS AND FINDING FREEDOM DIGITALLY

I AM NEW TO THE DIGITAL WORLD AS OF 2008.Since then I have discovered things in the digital world that are no longer new to me and have beocme part of my routine. Writing for World Pulse is one of the things that are now part of my routine and the people I meet through that process.
Yesterday I ended up in the emergency room in the small town I live in due to an injury. I had to wait for over 30 minutes for the doctor so I talked to the nurse while I was waiting and told her aobut world pulse etc and the digital world . she was very interested and took down the information and I encouraged her to contact world pulse and set up a profile and start writing, he response was very enthusiastic .

I feel the digital community is the strongest link between people and we can connect so quickly. Our stories are shared and respected and supported.
What I need from the digital community as far as help for myself and others is how to transfer information from camera to computer or download and upload. I also need help with how to copy a cd to another cd and or dvd . This is something I have yet to learn or how to transfer from the small computer stick information.

the digitial world awaits all of us, we can access education and so many things !

Way to go

Hi Diane,

Thanks a lot for spreading the World pulse message. It feels like its become a part of you as you have mentioned, I find that when something is dear to me, I talk about it to people regardless. I certainly will do the same next time I meet someone who has a minute. There is a lot to share especially among women, the more we share the more we learn. And perhaps we can have a platform of people who know how to use these gadgets, writing simple "How to posts" to help fill in the gaps like the one the nurse you spoke to had. These seem simple but not to everyone.

I celebrate you today for spreading the message, hope we can all contribute to world pulse in this way.

Blessings

Barbara
