Superheroes can do it and so can you!

A session at eurucamp 2012

Saturday 18th August, 2012

7:00pm to 7:15pm (CET)

You don't know it yet, but you're like Peter Parker, before he was bitten by a radioactive spider. You're Bruce Wayne, before his parents were killed. You're the daughter of Hyppolyta and Zeus.

How are you putting your abilities to use? You're probably already giving back to the tech community by writing great open source projects. However, you can make a much greater difference by stepping outside your field for a moment – and by returning afterwards, with new ideas, and experiences.

I'll show one example of this – doing field work in preserving endangered languages in Papua New Guinea, using my knowledge in technology. With Google stepping in to help save Endangered Languages, this is rapidly becoming a topic of great importance.

Chances are, you can't just run away to a strange faraway place. So what can you do, right now? What's your calling? Follow it!
