Like anyone I’m interested in how I can “optimize” my time learning about new concepts in web development, programming languages, etc. Especially, since graduating, where the “traditional” studying is no longer part of my daily routine, I started to wonder what could help me be more “efficient” when learning about new things…that’s when I read about holistic learning.
Integrating FitVids.js into WordPress
Responsive web design is on the rise and so is responsive images and videos. FitVids.js is a lightweight, easy-to-use jQuery plugin for fluid width video embeds.

ITU 2009 Youth Forum Declaration
The 2009 ITU Telecom World Youth Forum has served as platform for the development of global network of youth that truly want to make a difference in the future of information and communication technologies (ICTs).
We are aware of the challenges that stand before all of us in achieving the goal of connecting our world by 2015. However, the dire need to connect the world is too great for us to slow the pace of progress. We urge all UN agencies, national governments, industry and market leaders, educators, and society as a whole support the ITU “Connect a School, Connect a Community” initiative. It will reach those who can most benefit from adequate ICT connectivity and applications: children, and underprivileged groups. The Youth Forum is proud to have been addressed by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to support this important initiative and thank ITU Secretary-General Dr. Hamoudon Touré and BDT Director Sami Al Basheer for moving this initiative forward.
The following declaration aims to highlight the most significant challenges related to ICTs today. Our vision is to address these challenges. Our focus is on all ICTs, from basic public payphones and mobile phones to television, Internet and IPTV. We request your kind attention and thank you for taking the following demands for action seriously.
