We envisioned this year’s July issue to be an inaugural attempt at creating a contributor-driven “unconference issue.” And while this month’s issue is a compact one, I think its contents speak to the spirit of an unconference—user-driven conversations and knowledge-sharing that span a wide range of topics, media and scope, engaged with at our own pace.
In this post April Fool’s Day release, we reflect on the role of satire in a post-truth world, and introduce a new issue of Inside OCULA with a new editing team.
As we produced the April Fool’s Day special issue this year, we talked a lot about “fake news”. Ryan Tucci has some thoughts and suggestions on how to approach this topic in April Fools and Fake News.
The April issue of Inside OCULA includes the new OCULA President, mentoring programs, the OCULA Spring Conference, lightning strikes presentations, and two award-winning projects.
We hope you enjoy this issue, and please do let us know what you think.
