Today’s post marks an important day in the life of the INDATA blog, it has officially turned 500! Well, it’s the 500th blog post that is. So we’re going to keep today light and fun, with a little assistive technology of course, and take a few minutes to find out what you (our audience) have loved to read over the past couple of years as well as hear from some of our very own team. Thank you so much for allowing us to keep you informed about the world of assistive technology and the people who use it. We have truly enjoyed every minute!
What does INDATA mean to you?
I think it means helping people who otherwise would not be able to help themselves, as far as getting the equipment they need and just being able to help other people. It makes me feel good to help other people. – June White, INDATA Administrative Assistant
INDATA is Joy
My mom always tells us to find a job that you enjoy doing so that coming to work is fun. “If work is fun, then it will not feel like work,” she wisely advised us. INDATA is filled with so many stories that gives me tremendous joy, especially considering the vast amount of work that my wonderful colleagues accomplish despite meager resources. – Alvin Alviar, Assistive Technology Equipment Assistant
For me, it means giving used computers and AT equipment a new lease on life. Which also means that some folks are getting technology to help them find their own place in the world. – Mike Garberg, ReUse & Distance Educ. Tech.
Helping people with disabilities to be able to do things they never thought possible. – Steve Carter, Equipment Assistant
