Boring Website for Youth

January 17, 2007 permalink

The Ontario government is promoting though the press a recently launched website,

The promoters did not bother to debug the technology. Enlarging the text size results in unreadable text overlap, and several video clips show only a test pattern.

Young people (and older ones too) will be bored to tears reading about:

  • Minister Chambers' statement to the legislature
  • The announcement of $28.5 million for Ontario Youth Opportunities Strategy.
  • Press releases for job programs that don't tell where to apply.

People currently engaged with provincial services for children will find more of interest in sites by former foster kids John Dunn, Jessie McVicar and Erika Klein.
