Callum commented on OpenSlum

I think this is a great idea. Additionally, I think further research to explore what other low-cost technologies are feasible to be adopted in urban slums over the next decade would be interesting. If Elon Musk's satellites, Google's Loon project and Facebook's solar-powered drones launch successfully and bring greater satellite internet coverage, adoption of lower cost versions of the Raspberry Pi (or similar devices) in these communities could provide low-cost opportunities for education, raise awareness and support community led solutions to climate-related challenges we face globally.
