+Virtual Photo Walks is a project to allow people using Google+ to be interactive citizens again. Utilizing the hangout feature and smart phones, people are able to visit and interact with smart phone enabled photographers to see places and people they use to, see things that they might not have had the chance to see. virtualphotowalks.org for info.
It is a not just a service for those who are hospitalized or cannot go out into the community, but also for the many who just need a break in their day. It is a way to lend a helping hand by providing a window to places and things most of us take for granted. A truly interactive experience.
I first reported issues with my DSL to CenturyLink back in September and it is now mid-November, speeds constantly going up and down. It constantly drops down to lower than a dial up connection speed. I first contacted them via Twitter, then by phone calls, and even sending an e-mail to the Executive Headquarter Offices of CenturyLink. After several attempts by techs to fix the problem, and experiencing some things that were said and done, that were unpleasant in my opinion ( I could go further here, but will leave it unsaid, for now ). Nothing has changed, and the problem is not fixed. I am paying for a 3.0mbps subscription, and get at most 1.50mbps. It is as if a faucet is being turned on and off, from a slow trickle, to a faster stream. This morning, the speed was at one point 0.11mbps, which is 14.0kbps, far less than a 56k dial up connection. then it will be back up to 1.48mbps. I am asking CenturyLink to repair the problem. To give me what I am paying for. This has been taking way too long. This should have been resolved a long time ago. I am not even being offered a credit on my phone bill, or a refund, or any other alternatives. CenturyLink DSL is the only hi-speed internet option in my area, unless I want to spend exorbitant amounts of money on Satellite Internet, or Cellular Data Internet service. I am disabled, and am on a low fixed income, and can’t afford anything else. Being disabled, the Internet has become a lifeline. Connecting me to the world, to my family, and to my friends. I have found much enjoyment, entertainment, and education because of it. Now, I feel like it has been taken away from me. CenturyLink, can you please fix this problem?
