Great footage https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/his-highness-agakhan-amitabh-bachchan-awarded-padma-awards-hirji.  This may not relate to the awards directly, although I am hoping this statement I am making will get to global leaders in India and the Agakhan himself.  What if many of these International Development Organizations and Foundations made special efforts to protect their field workers in the digital age AND the foundations and NGOS,  also made especially efforts to speak around the protection of  all innocent children and women who are now at risk in the digital age as they bridge the digital divide. If we are to protect children off line - why not online...from many cyber dangers, threats and intruders unfortunately the same technologies we use the cyber criminals use it also ? If we are going to protect innocent children and women off line in many developing countries  ....why not protect all innocent children online. Some children are very luck to go to Agakhan Schools... but many don't .   As a digital activist, I have been  working on bring awareness of many cyber dangers we all face as innocent end users of technology since 2004. Many technologies can be hacked in today's digital age and now there is a need for a solution from an end point in the 21st century in the digital age. Ashie

YES to this quote I totally resonate with this quote..I could name a retail outlet that needs to adopt this quote in Vancouver .. instead of hiring people who know the sector well, they go hire people who have never been in the sector - just because they can manipulate them... Ashie

  #Snowden   Legendary #NSA whistleblower explains why he said Snowden was becoming 'a traitor'

Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/william-binney-and-snowden-traitor-debate-2015-4#ixzz3Yw8tlkaP "he is transitioning from whistleblower to a traitor"
Four days after the SCMP interview, Binney gave an interview to USA Today in which he was asked about whether Snowden is a hero or a traitor.

"Certainly he performed a really great public service to begin with by exposing these programs and making the government in a sense publicly accountable for what they're doing," Binney said. "But now he is starting to talk about things like the government hacking into China and all this kind of thing. He is going a little bit too far.

#Snowden  Why do you think different countries have responded differently to Mr. Snowden’s revelations?

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Germany and Brazil paid a lot of attention, that’s where Glenn [Greenwald, another journalist working with Mr. Snowden] and I were based. But I think in Germany they are particularly sensitive about surveillance because of the history of the Stasi and the Nazi era. There are really active historical memories of what it’s like when you don’t know which of your friends are informants. It’s not an abstract concept at all.

But in the U.K. context, it has been disappointing. One of the reasons has been the use of how the government has basically intimidated the press from reporting. A lot of the press, to their great shame, complied with [the government]. I think it’s a failure of the media in the U.K. In the U.S. context, even though there were news organizations like the [New York] Times or the Wall Street Journal that didn’t have the documents, they did good reporting. The response from the press was a bit more healthy in the U.S. The Guardian allowed themselves to be pressured to destroy source material — it’s unfathomable why they didn’t put up a protest. I can’t imagine any U.S. news organization ever letting a government official enter the building.

#Snowden and #Putin  live on TV  “Mr. Snowden, you are a former agent,” the president replied. “I used to work for an intelligence service. Let’s speak professionally.”
“Our intelligence efforts are strictly regulated by our law,” Mr. Putin said. “You have to get a court’s permission first.” He noted that terrorists use electronic communications and that Russia had to respond to that threat.

“Of course we do this,” Mr. Putin said. “But we don’t use this on such a massive scale and I hope that we won’t.”

“But what is most important,” Mr. Putin concluded, “is that the special services, thank God, are under a strict control of the government and the society, and their activities are regulated by law.”
Video of the former National Security Agency contractor Edward J. Snowden asking President Vladimir V. Putin about surveillance during a call-in program on Russian television was quickly posted online by a state-owned broadcaster.

Introduction
Tech & Digital Activist, Visionary- advocating for innocent children, women and activists end point safety, protection and digital privacy rights and digital education for all.

About me: My  quest to find  digital safe technology solutions for innocent users for their end point safety, protection & privacy rights a solution that is need in the 21st century  @mymulticast
   
My portfolio can be viewed @aGemofanIdea and my digital human journey in the quest of finding a digital end point safety solution for innocent children and women for the education sector in the developing countries as they bridge the digital divide. I am speaking with technologist to help me to solve this issue. There is a NEED for end point safety and protection digital tools. 
This was a concern to me, when I  began  my work in 2004 for my own projects when I connect students and youth in developing countries working with schools in Africa.  I am  focused  with this work and speaking with a few technologist  to support my work, there is a need for a solution..It has not been easy to keep the vision alive without getting financial resources. I keep bringing awareness and making sure globally all  innocent children, teens, women and especially activists like me are also protected from the current cyber dangers we all face and at the same time keeping children safe from  cyber dangers such as human trafficking and cyber intruders when we design our new media projects - Internet is a blessing and yet there is a dark side of the Internet & technology.    I began this career & journey in  2004 after I left the fragrance, cosmetic and luxury career.  I miss the career so when I have time I do some  consulting work and sustain myself I work with a luxury fashion brand and I am designing a concept model to  reach my goals. 
Currently looking for key ethical investors to support couple of my projects for creating a new way for digital learning for future generation ... follow my  human digital journey on mymulticast blog   and check the school project in Africa  http://about.me/ashiehirji
