Skype videochatting is now available at the Malak Telecentro. Currently, one computer has Skype installed but more computers will have it within the next month or so. Skype was requested by recently-arrived migrants to stay in touch with their relatives and friends overseas. Ghulum Reza (in photo) was the first to request the service and has been a regular user since it was installed at the Telecentro last month.

Tagtool was at the Harmony Day 2011 Soiree at the Darwin Waterfront on 26 March. We projected onto a wing of the Medina hotel from dusk to Earth Hour. Tagtool was (again) very popular with children. We also saw a new use for it: painting messages, like "I love you ..." for all to see. We also tried to project onto the front facade of the Convention Centre but it was too bright there so we moved to the Medina. We were able to test our portable projection set-up however (using a boat battery and inverter) at the Convention Centre; it worked well.
