^IfMine in the news

An article about ^IfMine was recently published in The BG News, Bowling Green State University’s campus newspaper.

Below are a few excerpts:

“The site was built for people in all fields,” said Danielle Hunter, social media director of ^IfMine. “Basically, if you have a project in need of feedback, ^IfMine is for you.”

“This could be a great tool for students who are working on papers and projects of any kind and are looking for feedback outside of their closest circle of friends,” he [Anthony Fontana] said.

“The student wins if they see how talented they are, simply by others putting it out to them,” he [Joel Shiffler] said. “That’s where mentoring, collaboration and followers are true friends  — when they give to each other something that counts.”

Let’s have some fun…

When did you get your first computer? The year was about 1990 and I was in middle school. I received an IBM-compatible computer for Christmas and remember being upset it wasn’t a Macintosh. I soon forgave my parents for their mistake, learned the software, played Solitaire and wrote countless short stories on it.

Describe your early experiences with the Internet: I barely remember using the Internet in my high school’s library, but I do recall being in the computer lab at the University of Toledo in 1996 when I was introduced to WebCrawler. When I think about how the Internet works, I’ve never been able to get the image of a bunch of Spideys crawling around the web, capturing information for search engines.

What do you do when you’re not using tech? Since I’m a mom, I’m usually doing housework, running errands and helping the kids in one way or another. If I had it my way, I’d be spending most of my time in the craft room, getting messy and listening to music.

Stay tuned for more Meet The Team posts! Until then, I’d like to hear from you: What were your early experiences with computers and the Internet? And what do you do when you’re not using technology?
