Microsoft helps the illiterate find employment

Billy Gates and his troupe of computer-persons have a new project in the offing; they’re developing software to help illiterate Indian women find work. [Beware, this link has a lengthy but skippable intro-ad that even faithful Firefox won’t squash.]

I may just email them to see if they would consider rolling out a similar project here in Velcro City…in fact, something similar might work well integrated into MySpace, which never ceases to astonish me with endless examples of semi-literate ramblings by priveleged Western kids who have no excuse to be so bloody feckless. Regular readers may remember that illiteracy is something of a rant subject here at VCTB.
