Children all over the world first learn their ABCs from the school and from the popular computer game. But the United Nations children’s agency (Unicef) has launched the first computer game to educate children’s and grown up people about AIDS. The game called “What would you do?” (Ungefanyaje?) aimed at halting the spread of HIV and AIDS in Africans nations. Africa accounts for most of the world’s 2.3m children who are HIV-positive.
Brilliant idea, hope this sort of game and education program will be translated in other languages too. I would also like to see some famous cartoons and other famous TV programs which are generally aimed for children’s spread some awareness about this deadly disease as most of children do watch cartoon and TV.
Use technology to Stop HIV-AIDS

As I said in my earlier post [Indian Call Centre:Boom or Doom:Concern Over Showing Cracks] Data security has become the top risk concern for many UK and US companies that are considering outsourcing operations. To keep our BPO industry government should bring strict laws for BPO industry and for BPO employees. We need to act on this and fast, as time is running out and world is watching us. Glad to see that Indian government finally made amendments in Information Technology Act (2000) rules. Under the new law, fines of over US$1 million can be imposed on companies and individuals who fail to stop data theft and the leakage of personal information.
MUMBAI – Responding to a string of embarrassing sting operations exposing data theft in the Indian business process outsourcing (BPO) industry, the government this week approved amendments to the Information Technology Act (2000) aimed at making life more difficult for IT criminals.
