Tonight, I present the latest episode from the YouTube PBS Idea Channel. TRIGGER WARNINGS! The internet’s method of warning viewers that the discussion or content they are about to view may ‘trigger’ anxiety or PTSD. But as trigger warnings move out of private spaces and into public ones, like college classrooms, do they limit conversation? Or is it the opposite? Join Mike on this week’s episode of Idea Channel as he articulates the difference between online trigger warnings and those within the classroom. Are trigger warnings actually encouraging conversation? Let us know what you think in the comments!
And here are the comment responses to the Do Makers Propose A More Open Source Future? episode.
