Post on new CRASH Space repo

Your weekly reminder to back up your data, update software and otherwise pay attention to your digital environment. (Oh, and to go to the CRASH Space meeting…)

  • Welcome. If you haven’t been following along, it’s okay. You’re not behind, you’re just where you are.
  • The coach tool at the Crash Override Network has a great step by step break down that makes it really easy to start.
  • If that site doesn’t fit your needs or you want more, that’s okay, there are more recommendations under Start Here on the repo.
  • Feeling more ambitious? Review the list of OneThing articles and pick one to catch up on.

Sweep

The basics slightly revised and with a printable checklist.

Learn

Where do you scan for news?

Reflect

Feeling dumb or stupid about how not-l33t you are? Angsting over some silly thing you “know better than to do.” Stop. That isn’t useful. Regret is only of use if it prompts an actual change in behavior. Maybe it’s NOT you that sucks. Could be it’s the technology and you could come up with a fix that would help lots of people. Look forward and make a plan.

Did you know that there were THOUSANDS of images in the public domain at the Library of Congress? Introduce yourself to a bunch of them with this Photo Roulette game that asks you to guess the date of a random image from the collection. Made with glitch.

Share.
