Nomad No Limit Challenge?

Is it really a challenge???

i dont think so !

y ? well, i did went to the casting, everything was ok…

i know some people who got the opportunity to go to the “seance photos” and one even got a “rendez vous” with a psy in order to proceed further…

nomadchallenge

the problem with the system is that i got the impression that they r not looking for people with the good qualities in regard to the use of internet but its rather that they are looking for people that will only n only look good on tv..thats all…
it was expected that it would be commercial but not at this extend…
according to a friend who went there for the seance photos, those who were called there were :S, not fit for the challenge…

I was told that one of the chosen (among the 15 best) did not even know how to use the net properly…
i got nothing against those selected but that friend of mine, simply got a chance to be there.
for instance, she knows only how to chat n keep a skyblog that she created.

when i subscribed myself to the competition, i was asked if i could make web sites, small programs, etc…
well, dont seem that the ones they chose know how to do all these :S !

well, we will c….
lets wait for next week and

Let the Show Begin !

    KI SERTI!!!!

    an ISP promoting its image by those who r at ease with camera -> commercial

    knowing web design, programing seems to b too pro to take part??? lol

    hope to have a good time enjoying the show
    esp after watching the costume 4 casting 😀

  • wahooo!! :P:P
    hehe am expecting a high standard of competition

    it would be really wasteful to see lame boys and gurls chatting for 6 days (if its all that they know :P)

    we’re talking about cyber island etc, it would be a real set back if such a mediatic event when on with easy challenges and not really showing how mauritians are at ease on the web!

  • i was expecting something highly professional 2 but seems my expectation was too high…

    we’ill see..remains 3 more days for the casting on tv to finish…and till now, am :@ !
    they were unfair in choosing the right person with the right qualifications!

  • Patrice

    hello there,
    nice blog
    Am not really, into computers and internet but government was putting lots of emphasis on cyberisland,

    its sad to see, mauritians have limited use of the internet which resume to chatting,

    i’ve been to talking to a friend at uom(doin computer science),lots of guys(worst for the cse people) who don’t even have a place for them on the net,

    i’ve been to france and spent some time in Uk,
    young people out there are really very at ease on the net, have elaborate websites at a very young age and even making money from advertisement

  • hi patrice…thnks for ur comments…

    ya, u are right…
    we dont have the web culture in mauritius, not yet!

    to start wiz, blogs should be encouraged, promoted…
    y not organise some competitions, not like that nomad one! disgusted by the casting !

    4 yrs back telecom plus, organised the web d’or for the 2nd time n since then, no more competition!
    the nomad challenge has in some way, opened a new era by making internet more advertised for a large audience through the tv…

    chatting n only chatting!

    y not adding these ;
    > maintaining a blog
    > participating in forums
    > making web sites
    > promoting some activities through web site
    > and so much more!

    well, is someone ready to promote a real web culture? in mauritius of course?

  • Patrick

    Hi everyone, want to talk about the Nomad Challenge!
    I was there too, the question they ask me was if I was able to write a program? As my answer was yes, i think that I loose all my chances in participating in the final!
    I think that they have chosen the candidates randomly!
    I think that it is blackslash who will win the challenge!

    Your commrnts…..?

  • Rasgoola

    Well it seems that the nomad challenge is a real fiasco, izzyladoo is more opt to winning this competition because i think nomad is looking for some who will be able to represent them for some coming years being like an ambasado to them.
    Anyway i think these challenges should have been opened to everyone and not from a closed space but to all mauritians able to connect to the net and use it properly. Who call it the first tv reality show when u are not able to see the people live 24/24.
    Anyway thats my view.
    take care..

  • to ena raison Rasgoola…cute name 😛
    ki serti passe tele realiter, kot li pas meme montrer twa ki zotte p faire apart ene koup montrer zotte google earth…le reste time, nek ena interview! pas meme dire, ki bane challenge ki zotte fine faire n how zotte decide who will go out!

    mais mo penser, backslash ki pu gagne sa since li deja dans le domaine et d’apres mwa raison zotte fine select li pu forme parti these 6 is the fact that he showed so much luv n respect towards his parents..this was his
    main point!
    mais izziladoo ossi ena so chance…

  • preeti

    i think its coz u dont have to much hair on ur head that u havent been accepted… 🙁

  • ya peut etre…
    a good reason…
    another good reason is that perhaps i got a bit too much experience in internet?
    y ? lol, cpv mwa mo pena boukoup hair, mo accept, mais mo ena 2 cams from uni, zotte si zotte fine aller!
    alors, kifer zotte pas fine accept? trop boukoup hair perhaps 😀

  • izzyladoo

  • Alors, mo pas penser to bisin bitter lor le fait ki to pane selectioner Yashvin. Let’s not over-estimate your assets here 🙂 Mo penser ki selection ine fer dans l’esprit d’egalite dans la limite du possible ek zote ine prend bane dimounes ki pou capave ena plisse l’impact lor television. Et zote fine ena raison. Izzyladoo c ene competiteur a part nette, d’ailleurs mo trouve ene site ine fer so interview tout – http://thisismauritius.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=346&Itemid=73 ki imper plis detaille ki bane sa ki ena lor lagazette. Anyway, prend li simple. Le meilleur a gagne je pense. Well done Izzy.

    to Gatoroche…
    ya, normal pu feel a bit better and as u well said, zotte fine rode dimoune ki ena plis impact lo tv…100% dac r twa…
    mais kifer lors de remplisage kestionaire lo telephone zotte ask twa si to kone ekrire programs in diffrerent languages, faire ene site etc…?
    ou encore, Are You An Internet Champion?
    apart Izziladoo, Backslash n ‘peut etre’ Spider, mo pas truv lezotte la internet champions…
    enfin, le meilleur ine gagner, no regrets, mais mo ti penser ene finale entre li n backslash as expected by all…

    thnks for ur visits…

    I feel sorry for u that i came to know abt this topic so late but nevertheless i’ll bring some clarifications to your lack of information concerning the NNLC. everything done was real. the questions set was a hard time for the challengers. if you want to know abt the challenges that the six participants underwent, rendez vous during the infotech where u will get the opportunity to play the challenges with the challengers themselves. the challenges will be on nomadlive.com during infotech.
