R.I.P. Derek Prince

From 2006 until overwhelmed by illness, Derek was the mobile tech guru for older people.

Derek passed away Tuesday 19 July 2022.

Nobody has made a greater contribution to real social and digital inclusion in this area.

Hackney Mobile Seniors Final

Hackney Mobile Seniors (or Hackney Seniors Mobile) was the name Derek used for his informal, but very effective, mobile support gatherings.

The final gathering will be Tuesday 16 August, 2 – 3:30 pm, at Thingy Café in Hackney Wick.

This is a brief event for people who knew, worked with or were helped by Derek Prince. We will be in a corner of the Arbeit Studio gallery and the podcast studio — not the main café area.
