My Experience With Carmenta
I am fascinated by the Carmenta project. For me, the most important aspect of the Skype feature is that there are no limits or barriers on our perspective of life. I don’t have to live somewhere in order to study or work in a high-quality institution or company. And what’s more, it’s very stimulating to feel that you are part of the future, although this "future" is in fact our present.
