good interdisciplinary requirement - not many ask for NetLogo,GIS stuff.

i didn’t know that NPO like FOV existed in blore’. i have visited their website and read the contents. I feel it is a good work they have attempted to do. Understanding infrastructures & flow, networks, macro behaviour, patterns, complexity & emergence ; economics really needs playful, visual & network thinking. It is wise, they have ask for women developers. Some of our community activities & games we attempt do essentially match some of the policy making decisions.
