By letting them build it:

In charge of textual content development are Shireen Farrag from Egypt and Samir Essousi from Morocco, making effective use of the Community Website [http://mytecc.ning.com/] managed by Joana Barbosa from Portugal, Quality-Assured by Yakot Khateeb, an Arab Palestinian in Israel; statistics are processed by Mahmoud Abdou from Egypt on worldwide developed Open Source platforms, under the supervision of Roi Shillo from Israel. Senior managers are Sima Yazdani and Fred Mednick from Teachers Without Borders, supported by Justin Ball and David Wiley, UNDP/ICTDAR team: Ziad Haddara from Lebanon and Najat Rochdi from Morocco, and Cisco team, represented by Zika Abzuk and Orgad Lootski.

  4. Amazing! Great colaboration.
    I guess you need to adjust people’s involvement in the site to their technological abilities. But you can always find something for anyone 🙂

  5. Fleshingrass has chosen a rather blunt style. I don’t approve, although I am slightly amused. You can get a more civilized, and articulated, version of the argument here:

    The point is, Morris, that although I’m sure you’re acting out of the best intent, this quiz suggests a naive and slightly patronizing outlook. Do you really think that even one of the bullies on either side will have a go, and then have an epiphany: “oh, we’re all quite the same, why don’t we just live together in harmony?”

    Anyway, thanks for your support. Do come (and comment) again.

    As I toyed with the idea of making it, I thought maybe I am just being ‘smart’ or ‘clever’, that could be.
    To answer your comment. No it probably won’t alter any bullies consciousness. However it might budge the dormant, the ones sitting in armachairs into being more active. That is, if it is as emotive as I feel it turned out.
