1 – You are all invited…

I was paranoid when I deposited the money in my trading account. I felt like I had made a terrible mistake. The last time around, I had lost the entire amount and apparently, my parents thought that I had still not learned my lesson. But I tried looking up the trading program on all the review sites and all of the people who had used it gave a positive review and that really emboldened me. I was pleasantly surprised when I clocked in profit that helped me recover fifty percent of my investment in less than two days. Now I was quite assured. People, if you are from those you enquired yesterday on the blog “HBSwiss-is it a scam? I am categorically telling you today out of the experience, NO! It is not!! It is a legit trading system.

After two months of typing, clicking, drawing, painting and
surfing, the moment is finally there: From the 30th of
March until the 5th of April, Antony, Idris, Simon, John,
Ann, Joseph, George, Moses, Campos, Rose, Stephen, Wilsen,
John, Biasha, Bonface, Karani, Mark, Otieno and Geoffrey
will present their work in the National Museum in Nairobi!!
This special edition of NairoBitsNews is dedicated to this
exhibition and the work of the youths in particular.

Last week, Hester, Emer and Fiona gave the last regular
lessons to the MYSA youths. Now, everybody is preparing for
the exhibition, which will include web pages, animations,
drawings, paintings and other creative expressions of the
youths. Photographs are exhibited, including photos made by
the youths as an assignment as well as photos of the slums
they live in and photos made during the lessons and
excursions. Background information about computer
technology will also be provided. The NairoBits website can
of course be viewed.

On the 30th of March at 18:00 PM local time, the exhibition
will be opened. There will be speeches from the Dutch
Ambassador, MYSA director Samuel Karanja and the NairoBits
crew. Emer, Hester, Fiona and the youths will of course be
present and they hope you will come, too!! The opening is
open to everybody interested. If you’re not in Nairobi, you
can see pictures of the opening on the website.

2 – The magic word

* A story by MYSA-member Mark about the computer

The magic word, computer. Click, the magic world. So
precize and clear. Click and there you are. When I first
heard about computers I thought that they were one of those
things that you had to be an “A” class to understand. I
would walk in town and admire people sitting in sleek suit
behind the computer. Thanks to God, other MYSA comrades and
I have been given a change to study and explore the
computer world.

Ever since we started this project we have aquired many
computer skills. To open or start the computer and to type
text on a file in microsoft Word was my first programme to
do. I must admit that it was interesting and exiting to get
to touch the keyboard and use the computer the first time.
Not to mention the fact that it could be possible for
people all over the world to acces or read these things I
was writting. Paricuallarly exiting is it to work with our
dutch exchange partners.

We learned how to make images and alter the colourby using
the colorswatches, save them on the desktop or any other
suitable place. It is so nice because I get to choose any
colour I want or anything I want to draw and in that way,
expand my creative horizons. More interesting still is the
dreamweaver programme. This is because here I learnt how to
join the text on my word file to the image on my photoshop
file. This programm is very interesting. More so because
you are given the possibility to to make alteration or
changes to your work in that you can do another colour on
the background of your work simply by going to the window
on the toolbar and clicking on page properties and changing
the background colour there. You can also change the font
of your text by making it bold etc. Using the wide range of
possibilities you can make many changes on your image and
text before putting it on the web.

Come to netscape, and this is the most interesting of all,
because here you can share your work with the people around
the world. Using search enginer appropriately has also made
it possible for me to access information on the internet
with considerable ease. I also have learnt how to e-mail
and that is very interesting. There are so many
possibilities I have learnt and am yet to learn, so I guess
that’s what computer is all about, possibilities.

Nairobi, 8 March 2000

3 – The ABC of NairoBits

Especially for the exhibition in the National Museum, the
youths designed the ABC of NairoBits, consisting of words
related to art or computers. Please find a foretaste of
this ABC below!

D of Design by Kennedy

Design: are techniques that one use so that can comeup with
an adorable product. It consist of different shapes, lines
and angles.

E of E-mail by Joseph

E-mail: is like an electronic mail, is a facility for
sending letters, messages and receiving mail through the
computer from any part of the world which has a computer.

F of Floppy by George

Floppy: this is a plastic disk or disket which can be used
to save or store information or programmes from the
computer and it is portable but delicate as it can be
destroyed by falling, by splashing water on it or always
keeping on touching the metallic part.

V of Visual by Mark

Visual: Everything visible is visual (things you can see).
Art is visual. In photoshop you can make visual art using
colour and the various tools provided.

More letters can be found in the National Museum in Nairobi
from the 30th of March!

One of the most crucial things about trading online with the virtual cryptocurrency is the fear of it being wiped off or stolen, hacked from their accounts, which has been time and again been reiterated by the professional program coders who have made it next to impossible to crack and hack the codes to steal the cryptocurrency which is limited in circulation. There are many crypto trading software’s which have been all developed by experts who have made a thorough analysis and well researched before making it available online for people to benefit largely from this virtual platform of digital currency trading.

the Trading robot program has taken approximately more than 5 years of continuous research and testing done by the creator, taking in to account the recent developments in the technology, economic conditions, global and political events which influence the volatile stock and currency mining industry to a very great extent.  Ethereum Code trading robot is among the popular trading robot for forex trading in crypto markets in many currencies developed by professional long time trader Marc Weston, is a simple and easy set up tool which is out there to maximize the trading profits every day for  investors who have very limited or no knowledge how this industry works.

The robot is remarkable as it does most of the work which human mind may find it challenging to accomplish to analyze and trade effectively. The uniqueness of the software is that it gives trade signals which have a very high percentage of speculating a winning trade for the investor. Signing up is simple process, on completion of the initial details, a small amount of deposit is made to fun the account and then one can start trading the very same day, parameters relating to number of trades to be placed, risk level and ceiling on the buy and sell options can be made in the settings, and let the robot do all the other work.

Once the profits start coming, withdrawal is simple and can be converted into the user preferred currency. The one of a kind feature of cryptocurrency trading is that many positions can be open at the same time hence repetitions can be done or several other strategies can be used to get the favorable position, one can also alter the trade pattern if the past few trade signals are negative. The investment algorithm considers the pattern that in case of any negative financial outcome, it withdraws the trade and deposits back the money.

The following is a list of the latest posts from the blog. Maybe it will help you find what you’re looking for.

  • Five Events for Nairobits
  • Kinderrechten Festival (Child Rights Festival)

The two groups, Commenius College in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and the MYSA group in Nairobi Kenya built virtual places on a deserted island together. They chose the function for the village they would most like to see, be it a hang out place, a treehouse, a cafe or an airport.

Sometimes, it makes sense to do something that is not so common:

Have you ever felt the need to not be one among the crowd? Now, everyone follows the herd but the person who thinks that they cannot be a part of the herd and have the courage to be able to stand up for themselves is the one who will set a trend and millions of others will follow him or her.

Online trading is something that you must try:

A couple of months ago, I was sitting jobless at home whiling away most of my time. I was looking at a perfect workplace where I could be myself creatively. But seems that every place that I had in my mind were either overflowing with job applicants already or had no vacancy at all in the first place.

A couple of weeks later, I still had no job!

A little bit of saving that I had was my ration for the days that I sought another job. But weeks later and with no job likely to be on hand even now, I realized that my bank statement was a dangerous thing to reckon with. I did not have enough saving to last me even more than three weeks and in case I did not find any job in good time I would be rendered homeless because then I would no longer officially e capable of paying my monthly rent and my landlady was not a saintly lady at all!

Then something wonderful happens!

I was browsing the internet one day quite dejected when I opened the link to suggested web pages from my email and voila! What do I see?

This page tells me that there are trading platforms that I can trade on sitting right in the plush comfort of my home! I am interested and I start reading and I realize that this is it!

They filled their place in the village with images, texts, wishes and links. The groups worked individually and in groups and made use of an online notice board to collect suggestions and images from students in the other country to help them build their part of the island. The interface is scrollable norama of the island with parts of it clickable to zoom in on the areas built by the students.

The exchange started ran through February and March 2000. Take a look around the island to see the results:Island!

The invention of robots has become an automated trading solution for traders which made their work easy and had saved a lot of time and strain from research. There are many robots available in the market to perform forex trading, CFD’s trading or cryptocurrency trading. But while choosing they need to be careful about genuinely and reliability of software.

Faith left just a couple of days ago and we are still overwhelmed by all the things we discussed. Here our some of the highlights of her trip:

* Brunch with all the volunteers on sunday, the first time for a lot of people to meet Faith and discuss with eachother all the new plans.
* A visit to Mediamatic, a designstudio in Amsterdam and attending Emer’s class on concept developing.
* A visit to Stipo (Ineke’s workplace) to collect an nice design assignment for the youth.
* Meeting our dear sponser ICCO and talk about future plans and again… collecting an assignment for the youth!
* A visit to QuA Accociates (Hester’s workplace) to meet the designers and see the latest design possibilities in flash.

Quite a new adventure……

January 8:
Today the NairoBits youth started to come together again to work on the future of NairoBits. Unfortunately we are facing some challenges. The NairoBits project had to leave the school and is currently searching for a new space. The computers are in storage so we have to keep our fingers crossed that we get a new space soon. But of course we are not ready to give up and came with an alternative plan:

Simon, Mark, George Otieno, Kennedy will continue working on the Dutch Embassy site, first and any other work that is needed to be done.

Karani, Bonface, Idris, George Wambugu, Stephen will train the MYSA new youth

Geoffrey, Biasha, rose, Campos, Masaka, Joseph, Kiarie, Moses will go to Mombasa to work together with Kuona Trust (an artist organisation).More about this project later……

To continue teaching and doing projects we requested funding for the coming year, but all is still in process. Do you know somebody who is willing to sponsor the project, please let us know! info@nairobits.org With help we are aiming to be selfsustained within 3 years.

2001 January 1:
Happy New Year! May all your wishes come true!
Please keep a close eye on NairoBits this year to see what we will accomplish this year…..

On 20 November 1999, for the fifth time a Child Rights Festival took place in Utrecht, where it was celebrated that the Convention on the Rights of the Child was adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations exactly ten years ago. The Convention includes rights related to the education, health and protection of children as well as general human rights.

The Cryptocurrency trading tool is the latest investment options to those who are looking for a good income earning trading tool, with advanced technology and investment tool with a high level of accurate trades. The pre-programmed robot executes favorable trades on behalf of the user, keeping the user just aware of the trades being executed at lightning speed without having to worry the time lag which is one major setback in traditional offline trading across worldwide exchanges.

Users can safely proceed and register with the digital trading platform, choosing the best cryptocurrencies to mine and partner only with legitimate crypto brokers, the rest can be left to this robot which is the most powerful tool for placing high and consistent winning trades, available for new investors who are naïve and rest assured need not worry about their hard earnings being wiped off. The programmers who have designed the crypto robots have done a lot of research and developed complex mathematical algorithms which cannot be hacked or duplicated due to unique codes which are embedded in the trading software.

The NairoBits project recognises the importance of Child Rights, especially the right to information and the right to freedom of expression. NairoBits was therefore present at the Child Rights Festival in Utrecht, where children could draw pictures and write short stories on their ideas about Africa. You can see photographs of the most beautiful pictures and their makers below.
