Vermont's Top Innovators Honored at Tech Jam 2018

Social Sentinel, a Burlington-based company that identifies threatening content on social media, was among the winners of the 2018 Tech Jam awards, presented last Friday at the 12th Vermont Tech Jam. The prizes, given annually by the Vermont Technology Alliance, BTV Ignite and Seven Days, recognize leaders in the state's tech ecosystem. The awards ceremony was the culmination of a busy day at the free career and tech expo organized by Seven Days and presented by Vermont Works. Representatives from more than 50 companies and colleges talked with hundreds of attendees who walked the expo floor. Jeff Couture, executive director of the Vermont Technology Alliance, said he talked with job seekers from across Vermont and outside the state at the event, "including someone, suitcase in hand, who visited from North Carolina."

Re: “Big Fatty's BBQ (Burlington)

Administrative Note
Please note that this restaurant's star rating has been skewed by repeated ratings from a one-time customer. We intended 7 Nights to operate on the concept of 1 customer meal = 1 rating. That has not been the case here. Unfortunately, we are not yet able to alter past star ratings without deleting entire comments, something we are reluctant to do. Going forward, we have changed the system so that you can choose NOT to assign a star rating when writing a comment card. Simply choose N/A instead of clicking on the stars. This will not affect the rating of the restaurant. We have also asked owners and employees to identify themselves as such. Their ability to rate their own restaurants has been disabled, and their comment cards are labeled "affiliated." Thanks for using 7 Nights. --Cathy Resmer, Seven Days Online Editor Food: -1 Ambiance: -1 Service: -1

Re: “Stuck in Vermont: Celebrating Good Citizens at the Vermont Statehouse

Hi Manitsky,

Yes, I did read all of these submissions. Many of the activities required students to demonstrate knowledge of state government or the U.S. Constitution. Some invited them to explore Vermont and U.S. history. Others emphasized participation in the community. And a few invited students to express their opinions in a variety of ways, encouraging them to use their voices to advocate for their beliefs.

The instructions for that activity were: "Write a poem about America." We intentionally invited participants to interpret that in any way they chose, and they did! The submissions we received came from students all across the political spectrum, as you'll see if you pause the video and examine the entries we included here.

You can find the scorecard and all of the activities at goodcitizenvt.com.

Re: “Burlington City Council Approves Funding for City Hall Park Renovation

Hi RealityCheck,

I appreciate your suggestion re: requiring commenters to use first and last names.

Like every media outlet, we wrestle with how best to encourage thoughtful, civil comments on our site. It's a challenge, for sure. Our approach to commenting hasn't changed much since I wrote this piece for our media issue a couple years ago, explaining it. This policy is intentional: https://www.sevendaysvt.com/vermont/why-do…

For now, we rely on a team of moderators to ensure commenters are following our guidelines, and we appreciate readers who report comments that they feel cross a line. Find the guidelines here, and linked below every commenting box on our site: https://www.sevendaysvt.com/vermont/Commen…

Thanks for your feedback.

Re: “Jafar Vows to Remain in Burlington Council Race Despite Sexist Tweets

Hi there, I'm stepping into this lively comments thread to remind everybody to keep it civil. Here are our commenting guidelines. Please follow them.
https://7dvt.co/comment-guidelines

It's true that we generally give commenters greater latitude in criticizing public officials, especially those who are running for office. We also tend to give greater latitude to commenters criticizing Seven Days. That said, we typically draw the line at profanity, direct or implied threats of violence, or repeated personal attacks.

We do our best to moderate these discussions, and we appreciate your help in keeping them constructive, and reporting comments you feel cross the line.

Re: “A Reporter Tries Future Fit and Lives to Write About It

Hi there Oracle. Just saw your comment. Seven Days' advertising and editorial staff operate independently of each other. The writers pitching the stories, the editors assigning them and the proofreaders checking them before they go to press often don't know whether a featured business is or has been an advertiser. We often write about new businesses when they open, but don't assign stories because a business is advertising, and we never let any of the subjects of our stories review the content before it's published. The sales team doesn't get to see the stories in advance, either. We assume that readers understand this (especially given the content of some of our reviews!).

In the announcement of our new series, "Hooked: Stories and solutions from Vermont's opioid crisis," we did note the three underwriters that contributed funds for that specific project. Though they're supporting that content, they have no influence over it. We'll disclose that at the end of every story in the series.

Re: “Letters to the Editor (8/29/18)

Hi Richard, the vast majority of our letters to the editor are submitted using the feedback form on our website; whenever readers call or email criticism of our coverage, we encourage them to fill out that form. We also receive some feedback via email and believe it or not, other letters still come via the regular mail! If letter writers follow our guidelines, we will publish their views in a future issue of Seven Days. We do occasionally print comments that appear on our website, but first commenters are required to submit their real name, town of residence and a telephone number for confirmation purposes. Some commenters do not want to divulge this info, so their comments never make it into print. Please feel free to submit letters to the editor, or encourage others to do so, if you'd like to see a particular viewpoint reflected in the printed paper. Here's a link to the form: https://posting.sevendaysvt.com/vermont/Le…
