Third Presentation:

Digital Estate Planning: What Happens When I Die?

Making technology convenient and secure is a problem we deal with daily. We make trade-offs and use techniques to hopefully strike an appropriate balance. A more difficult dilemma that we rarely think about, however, is death or serious illness or injury. If something were to happen to you, would the people you leave behind be able to access the information they need? What happens to your encrypted data, online accounts, social media, online finances, pictures, and digital-whatever-else if you're not around to access it? Jon Mazur lead us with a short video followed by an online discussion on this very important topic.

Free and Alternatives to Free Software
Where money doesn’t have to speak and you still want to get quality software. We learned about the many alternative programs that you can get for free to do your computing tasks. Many of these programs are cross-platformed (meaning they have versions for Windows, Macs, and Linux) so it’s easy to share files with just about anyone. John Kennedy from East Central Ohio Technology Users Club presented to us the many FREE alternative programs that you may not know even existed.
