Eye4You Alliance is starting to put together their second college fair on the Teen Grid and they are looking for representatives from colleges and universities to share information.
If you or a representative from your college would like to take part you will need to have a background check and approval to work on the Teen Grid so you will want to get started right away on the process. The college fair will take place Oct 12th. If you would like more information you can go to the Eye4You Alliance island blog (http://eye4youalliance.youthtech.info/?page_id=629) or contact BlueWings Hayek or Alice Burgess on the main grid.
Invitations to Aviary
One of the photo tools that Pia Klaar discussed during the Web 2.0 workshop was aviary. This is a program that allows you to manipulate photos. Since it is web based it allows you to have access on any computer! When we posted our Web. 2.0 list we were contacted by a representative from Aviary (see comments) and she set Pia up with an account with 5 free invitations. If you would like one of these invitations please post a comment below and Pia can send you an invitation.
