    Did you all see this video of Burger King explaining net neutrality? What other offbeat ways of explaining digital literacy have you seen?

    Grant helps people in substance abuse recovery with computer training

    Maybe not offbeat but certainly a unique approach.  KSHB TV News did a story about our computer training program. Thanks to the KC Digital Inclusion Fund, the City of Kansas City Missouri, Google Fiber and Connecting for Good for supporting us in this effort!

    @Liza Dyer - I loved that video! Did you see the one they did about bullying? BK video team is on fire. It'd be great to see them do one about skills or connectivity...I guess we'll have to wait or those issue to have the cache of Net Neutrality.

    @Michael Liimatta Thank you for sharing this! It sounds like an innovative and vanguard program. ​​​

    I haven't seen anything this creative.  Mostly a few tweets prior to and post the commission hearings. It's a great idea to show the impact to everyday activities.
