I am so pleased you have started to come to the worknets chat room for our meetings on the first Thursdays of the month and that you are getting to know my friend and teacher Andrius Kulikauskas.
I noticed that you mentioned your project to him - where you said " right now i am working on a project monitoring air and water quality in Indian cities and towns:: the idea of this project is to empower citizens with crucial information about air and water quality (24x7)". (Andrius copied to the Holistic Helping group what you said in the chat room, and I am copying it later to add context.)
I am reminded of a conversation I had earlier this year with someone who was interested in monitoring air quality in London. However as it is not one of my key interests I did not note it down and now I am not be certain whose interest it was.
My first thought is that it might have been Andy B - so I will contact him for you and see if it was him (or perhaps someone he knows). I have written about your interest here because it pulls the information together, and even if Andy doesn't know... well... writing it up here may prove useful in finding someone with an overlapping interest.
Information below is taken from Andrius' email to the yahoo group Holisitc Helping (you may need a yahoo ID to be able to view the holistic helping group link). Holistic Helping is one of the yahoo groups in Andrius Kulikauskas' Minciu Sodas (Lithuanian for Orchard of Thoughts). Each yahoo group is a bit like a tree in the orchard, and they all have roots into the worknets wiki.
Yesterday at our chats I signed up Vijay Srinivas for Pamela McLean's
working group Learning From Each Other. (See our transcripts at:
