Recap of May 2019 Event: Beyond print and e-books: Leveraging content

Our May luncheon, Beyond Print and eBooks, featured presentations on three local content-sharing platforms. Roger Cummings of Juxtaposition Arts (JXTA) discussed the design process his team went through in creating Storymobile, a moveable space that invites people to share, display, and preserve the stories that matter to them. Mondo Davison, most notably known as “The Black Tech Guy,” spoke about his startup Shortiez, a digital library of original short stories written and illustrated by POC, increasing diversity and representation in K-8 classrooms. And Lizzie Ehrenhalt, an editor and public historian, told us about the challenges of creating and editing content for MNopedia, a digital encyclopedia of Minnesota history.
