With first hand knowledge of the lengths young people will go to to conceal their internet usage, Nikhil created SpyNik - a savvy way for parents to keep tabs on what their children are accessing online.
My workmate used to tell me about how she had no idea about how to stop her children looking at all sorts of websites [and I knew where she was coming from as I too hide sites such as Facebook from my parents]. Despite this, I had a real urge to crack this problem for my workmate - particularly as I thought it was impossible to crack!
It was really fun because I expanded my knowledge so much, found out about how the internet works, and realised it's much more complicated than I'd first thought.
In my spare time I like to play games, research things on the net, play a bit of sport and programme my device to make it better. And, I've recently joined Bright Sparks and am enjoying reading the forums too.
