CANCELED: The "Good" part of NCTech4Good

  • Jul 17, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • UNC-TV

Tonight's meeting is canceled due to unforeseen circumstances.

A nonprofit based in Raleigh, Alliance of Disability Advocates, Center for Independent Living, embraces their mission: To promote dignity, independence and consumer control for people of all ages and abilities, and to advance civil rights of equal access and full participation in society. Their website is dated and needs a more dynamic presence; it requires being accessible which includes different strategies for formatting including picture identification and more.

Fred Johnson (Communications Specialist) and Rene Cummings (Executive Director) will show us the problems with Alliance's website, describe their goals, mission, audience, and the current software they are using, and show us a few websites they like and what they like about them.

We'll explore options for improving the website and how we might go about doing it, with the goal of a follow-up meeting on a Saturday to actually do the work.

Pizza (sponsored by NTEN & PINInc/RTPNet) and discussion starting at 6:30, program at 7:00.

Many thanks to UNC-TV for being our host for this meeting. If you arrive late and can't get in, call our host, James McGurk, cell phone[masked]-8873. It's hard to see the front door from the meeting room.

We look forward to seeing you there!

    Think about the Saturdays (Sundays?) that you are available to work on the website. Perhaps bring your calendar. Should we pick a date during the meeting?

    I think it would be good to record this meeting and post it somewhere so that when we get to actually doing the work, we can refer to it. I think Google+ Hangouts on Air is overkill for this, though it makes putting it online easy. I have equipment (a webcam and a fast laptop, a Flip camera that records 2 hours, an iPhone 5 with LOTS of memory, and a tripod.) My results so far haven't been particularly good -- OK, but not great. Do we have a volunteer to choose the recording device, do the recording and put it online?
