In a program created by Seattle’s Office of Economic Development and the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle, sixteen high school students learned to make glossy new websites for some of the city’s Black-owned restaurants. The goal was to provide the teens with job skills, while giving the restaurants a stronger presence online.

This is really cool and I wish more tech education could be so carefully targeted for social good. Is it weird to think that advanced Excel skills would be similarly useful deployed in such a way? Harder to make available to businesses, though.

Is the kind of PoS software I see everywhere on iPads extensible in ways that could be made useful to its users?

of the four corners of the mainland, you’ve got to admit we’ve got a good case for ourselves
