As of this week, Nora Noone has joined our team as online community manager. Nora will be responsible for talking to you. Or, rather, you, if you occasionally interact with us on Facebook or Twitter, where she’ll try to build our community and, through that, our reach.
Nora is currently studying communications at Ithaca College in New York state. And that’s where we ran into each other, when facilitating a Dérive app workshop at Ithaca college in relation to the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival, where Nora was working as an intern.
Nora saw the potential of a mobile app which asks its user to look away from the screen. After collaborating on a deck of task cards for festival-goers to deploy while in Ithaca, she was hooked on the careful work it takes to make the Derive app as thought-provoking as it aims to be.
We’re very much looking forward to a fruitful and expansive collaboration.
