For the first time, I received an unsolicited comment on the text at the bottom of the Project Outcome paper survey (which I doubt most patrons even bother to read). It was a Digital Literacy survey administered at the end of a workshop called “Secure Your Smartphone,” which my library was offering for the first time.
The patron underlined Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, then wrote “these guys? A druglord may be more trustworthy”!
I’m curious as to whether anyone else has received feedback - written or verbal - on Project Outcome’s source(s) of funding - and also, though I realize this will be pure speculation, what might have made this patron distrust the Gates Foundation.
