I'm currently in Vitoria, Brazil researching the use of digital
technology by the people from the favelas (slums in Brazil). The focus
of me dissertation research is Telecenters and LAN Houses in the
favela of Gurigica.
I was recently chosen by Google to purchase the Google Glass. This
gadget could contribute immensely to my research due to its easiness
of collecting sound and pictures. Carrying around a digital camera and
a voice recorder has been quite risky since favelas are zones of high
crime and theft.
Google Glass is more subtle and small, which could call less attention
than carrying cameras and recorders around.
My budget for this research is very limit, and I can’t afford the
Glass on my own, and for that I ask for your help!
Any contribution is very welcome!
