10. Cody's Internet Citizen's Club Assignments
- Our website of the month in January is Cybernet News - a software/technology news site.
Cody, our rambunctious little bird mascot, has decided to form his own club and he wants you to join it! What's it all about? Mainly it's about being good internet citizens and active DC participants, and working as a team.
In each newsletter you'll have a small assignment or two - like finding a freeware author you like and emailing them a thank you, or participating in a forum poll. As a Cody Club member, we ask that you perform the Cody Club newsletter task (or else invent one of your own if you object to the one we've chosen). Occasionally you'll get a little treat, like a postcard in the mail, or a Cody Club iron-on. Only Cody knows for sure.
So.. have you completed this month's Cody Club tasks yet?
Special thanks to JGPaiva for help preparing this newsletter!
