Genre: Documentary image of a work-around for poor interactivity design.

At a workshop on ICT4D, everyone in the room was freezing but the thermostat was encased and could not be accessed by the “users” in the room. So, I went to the men’s room, got a paper towel and wetted it with cold water, and put it over the thermostat.
