Silent Internet Revolutions

There are ten DIDS conferences behind us now – ten great tales of the Internet. Year by year, DIDS has chronicled silent Internet revolutions. The eleventh DIDS is set to kick off a new decade – of asking important questions and of seeking to identify where we are today, of remembering where we came from and everything that has happened along the way.

In 2015, at the age of 47, she set up the „Mobilna sestra“ (Mobile Nurse) Home Health Care Service, which provides medical nurses for on-call home visits. After 26 years working in the state and private sectors, where she gained experience leading a variety of medical teams, Žaklina decided to invest her knowledge in launching a home health care service. Mobile Nurse provides care to clients in their own homes, from newborns all the way to the most elderly.

One of the nicknames she has acquired whilst working with clients has been the Lady with the Healing Smile. She hopes to replace terms like “home care” and “health visitor” with the term “mobile nurse”.

DIDS 2020 has an important question to ask you. Do you think about whose eyes you will (or already do) see the Internet through? Will freedom of movement through what is still the freest territory in the world be subtly restricted by the application you use? Can more online privacy...
You may have heard of someone ‘sleeping through a revolution’. It happens. Rarely though does anyone remain unaware of a revolution that they play a direct part in. Does anyone even think about starting a business these days without registering a domain name and building a website? How much do...
