A competition to find mobile apps for women appears to have received received no entries, so an ex-pirate has knocked one up to help women in the third world enter similar competitions more easily. Ridicomp is only one of Tom Scott's pair of entries, the other being an application to help those who've received billions in tax …
Never mind the prize...
Can somebody make this man president of the world or something?
Looks like they removed them - the page says "There are currently no entries.".
If they remove the only entries, he might be able to sue!
The deafening silence...
...should suggest to the competition managers that this competition is both insulting and unneeded. How about giving poor women more money? Or training so they can get reasonably good jobs? Ms Blair, please. Get a life.
Quebec... no-go zone!?
Am slightly surprised to see that Quebec is being lumped together with the likes of North Korea and Iran!...
Contest is open world-wide excluding residents of Quebec, Cuba, Iran, Myanmar (Burma), North Korea, Sudan, and Syria.
Quebecois aren't considered "real" French by the French, hence they are prepared to declare their new world cousins persona non grata because of their outrageous accents. I'm pretty sure Voda must have cut some deal along these lines (declaring Quebec didn't exist at all was probably too much)in order to make their sale of their French assets go more smoothly. It all makes sense when you think about it.
And the general lingering scent of elderberries on the male bloodline really pisses them off.
'Base of pyramid'
As in scheme?
By the way...
The Pirate Party isn't "anti-copyright" or campaigning for the abolition of copyright, the party wants to see reform of copyright legislation.
Sure, because what a woman in a third world country *really* needs is a smart phone stuffed with apps, GPS to the nearest well for instance, inflation tracking app, dictator mood-o-meter, proximity of nearest government rape squad etc..
all valuable ideas that will increase the profits of mobile companies massiv.. sorry, improve the lives of women no end.
I wonder if Ms Blair would comment on how much she was paid to front this blatant marketing scheme
You told us that they got their heads cut off in India for this last well el reginado.
RE: Heads Off
"heads cut off in India for this last well"
Over zealous predictive text intervention per chance? I feel your pain brother...I feel your pain.
