Videos for a snowy Saturday
Front Page, Week of April 16
This week, I’m very happy to share another project from an intern with you.
Davi Sprague, like Rachel Dick, has been working on this story for the past several weeks as part of a “micro-internship” through one of their classes at MTU.
The focus is on accessibility and ADA compliance, and I’m quite happy with the results.
I also had the privilege of introducing Craig Silverman this week during MTU’s Bad Info event, and the organizer graciously gave me the video to share with you.
Silverman’s talk focuses on mis- and dis-information, and I can’t recommend listening to what he has to say enough. Anyone who spends time online (which is you, if you’re reading this), needs a piece of this knowledge to help protect themselves against scams and manipulation.
And Happy Easter!
