We offer a fast attempt to measure the global digital native population with a model for calculating the number of digital natives in each country of the world. We have calculated the size of the digital native population by country, by region and by income level and have related the presence of digital natives to education and literacy levels, and ultimately to policy-making. According to the model, in 2012 there were around 363 million digital natives out of a world population of around 7 billion or 5.2 per cent.
We present a qualitative inquiry through the lens of feminist human-computer interaction (HCI) into women's perceptions of personal safety in New Delhi, India. Since a brutal gang-rape incident in December 2012 that received global attention, the Indian government has issued a mandate to implement a panic button on every new phone by 2017. We draw on interview and survey data to examine women's reactions to the mandate as well as what factors influence their perceptions of safety, both positively and negatively.

The aim is to investigate hybrid platforms that inform and engage local communities through the mediation of shared public spaces, digital media, mapping, and storytelling.
