Zini has always been fascinated by the high tech gadgets of the Giant Folk. At first, her fellow Zoo Dweller Clan members thought she was a bit daft, but nowadays they hold her in high regard. You see, Zini is plugged into the Net.

About 3 years ago, Zini and some friends managed to “aquire” a top of the line laptop computer. With a bit of work (and a “borrowed” corporate credit card), Zini was soon online and accessing all sorts of entertaining and informative websites. True, she has to use “push poles” to work the keyboard…and sometimes drafts her boyfriend into helping push keys…but she has become an invaluable part of her clan.

Over the years, Zini has amassed tons of software and peripherals. She is also active on several discussion boards and keeps a blog. Recently, she has discovered a secret website founded by another high tech loving Tiny Person. In fact, there are nearly 50 Tiny Folk worldwide who are online and posting to the site!

Zini’s current project has been to adapt a Blackberry keypad to interface with her laptop, thus making life way easier for her. See, she got the information on how to do it from a website…
