Senior Digital Santas

CK
An interesting read on how some seniors in USA are utilising the power of tech to help kids relive their Santa dreams during the COVID-19 pandemic:

Each year, White and Rogers, who met on Match.com 13 years ago, emerge dressed as the Clauses in Kansas City, Missouri, frequenting restaurants, museums, fundraisers and events, including the Kansas City Royals baseball team's holiday festival. Now, they're logging about four to six video calls an hour to kids and their families across the country, up to nine hours a day, on their website VisitFromtheClauses.com through Zoom. The price for a private chat ranges from $49 for 5 minutes to $69 for 10 minutes.

Homeschooling in SG

CK
" You cannot be the kind of parent that is very uptight about keeping up with the Joneses and getting A stars and good grades. If you are, I think you will be very, very frustrated. If you feel that your kid needs to get A stars, then you're not homeschooling, you’re schooling your kid at home."

I love this quote "you're not homeschooling, you're schooling your kid at home".

This article covers this Singaporean family's perspective on homeschooling their children.

A No-Code future?

CK
"To him, product represents value delivered, and nothing else. I learned about the mechanical turk model: how a Google Form and a couple of phone calls can support, and become the product, of any delivery business. No apps, no code: whatever it takes to get the job done, ASAP."Β 

This article provides a possible glimpse into the future of work, where applications would eventually be created without the need for hardcore coding skills.
