Upload Your Files to GOOGLE DRIVE!

19 October 2012
Ah, that CLOUD! It is here and you cannot escape it! There are many ways to use Google Drive ... some folks prefer to install the "official"client on their machine, others simply access the service vis the "cloud" through their web browser.

Google has now deployed a small update allowing users to upload files directly into your storage space using  drag / drop. Wonderful, it goes without saying, but note even all-of-you will need the latest version of Chrome to enjoy it.
Prior to this update, it was already possible to upload  files to our Google Drive using a simple drag / drop.  Superbly convenient, of course, but this function was suffering even all-of-a limitation: it only accepts files, and nothing but files.
Google Drive accepte maintenant le téléversement de dossiers
In other words, if you wanted to store the contents of a folder in your Drive, you only had two options: file upload each one to one or through the official client. . If this option does obviously no problem on a machine that you are the administrator, this does not necessarily even for a computer that does not belong to us, and which operates on a limited session. It is precisely for this reason that this small update may make life easier for a lot of users.
Now and as long as you are using the latest version of Chrome, it will be possible to upload one or more folders (and their contents, of course) in the sliding window on the Google Drive.  You slide, it goes and you have nothing more to do except wait and wait quietly and uploading to an end.

Get Ready For BLOG ACTION DAY 2012!

09 October 2012

The theme for Blog Action Day 2012 is …
October 9, 2012
The theme for Blog Action Day 2012 will be (drumroll please) …

“The Power of We”

We choose this theme for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the popularity of the your suggestions; Community, Equality, Transparency/Anti-Corruption and Freedom, in our theme poll.
Secondly, The Power of We is a celebration of people working together to make a positive difference in the world, either for their own communities or for people they will never meet half way around he world.
So, what what will I do for my Blog Action Day post, I hear you ask?
Well, you might profile someone or a group who inspires you by the way they made a positive influence, talk about your own efforts to make change with others, or highlight a cause that is successful for using people power to make a difference.
There are hundreds of examples you could choose from such as fighting for healthier meals for kids in schools, protecting people’s rights in countries far away, stopping practices in industries that hurt the environment and communities, challenging authorities to listen and act for the people, ensuring people small-scale farmers get fair deals, the rights of women and children are  protected and many many more.
You might even want to discuss the strategies and tips of how to organise to encourage other people to make change happen on the issues they care about, or make it easier for them to join in existing groups.
As Blog Action Day get’s closer (just under seven weeks away) we will be highlighting the thoughts of our NGO partners, previous Blog Action Day participants and interesting individuals have about our theme, and ask them to provide suggestions and materials that you can use for your blogs on October 15, 2102.
Over the next few weeks we will be increasing our communications with a weekly email to people who have registered to take part in Blog Action Day, as well as regularly updates, content and opportunities via our website and social media channels.
The team at Blog Action Day can’t wait to see what you all blog about and we really hope that you enjoy taking part in Blog Action Day on October 15, 2012.
Jason and Karina from Blog Action Day.
