16th July 2012
Had a meeting with Lee and Charlotte Orr (owner of the design company 3webfeet Limited) to discuss the purpose of the kiosk, so that the kiosk design features could be developed by a professional designer at 3webfeet Limited. Also, discussed with Lee my research and work on the Visual Basic web browser and keyboard – the intention is to be able to have the keyboard and web browser communicating with each other in 3 weeks (when my first EIT assignment is due).

Got feedback on the network diagrams I had prepared, with a few changes needed.
