This website could be inproved by:

  • Making it easier to sign up
  • Making it easier to embed things (or maybe i’m just doing it wrong… :) )
  • Making it easier to find work (blog posts)
  • it’d be cool to have tutorials on the site, e.g how to use special effects.

33 Things the Youth of Newman Can Do

On our last ‘workday’ with them we did a nice review of everything they’d learned. At this point, without any youth center or community technology space to call their own – it’s up to Newman’s youth to determine their future as the town’s central media makers.
