I recently went on a bit of an app download spree, and one of my favorite free new apps is Digital Democracy’s RSS feed app. I’ve been getting news that is uplifting and informative about human rights issues around the globe, and what I really like is that they showcase how these issues pertain to me – and my field of graphic design and new media.
