  1. i see a good stuff in here, but just curious why only students in universities? some are graduates and are working..and perhaps may as well work while pursuing their post graduates or masters programs of some sort…my point here is, there are youths who would love the opportunity to apply but could be now working in private / government firms or institutions, and this category of youths do feel ignored..next time Google comes up with a project should consider “youths” in broad spectrum. 🙂 Thanx and Wish YOU the BEST

  2. …I didn’t get a feedback after i have submitted my application, how will i be sure that it was delivered?

  3. This is one of the best things that i have ever experienced, the 40 MIT students innovated me very pleasantly, i am very also broad that i am now a member of the DTBi community, i am certainly awaiting for much to hear from this community and the ICT for TD community…<3 you all.
