With friends and connections and sharing on our mind, it seems a fine time to check out a tool that gives you a little friendly “hacking” experience from our friends at Mozilla. X-Ray Goggles is part of the Webmaker Toolkit, and its overlay system provides a perfect way to hack the message of a website.
Check out how we “hacked” the Daily Connector back during a previous incarnation for Connected Courses:
For this Daily Connect, find a blogger or a writer — make a new friend — and use X-Ray Goggles to, eh, make a few changes to their writing. (When you “publish” with X-Ray Goggles, the original post does not get affected but it does create a URL that allows you to share the hack). Be friendly. Be funny. Be political. Maybe you could get a little snarky.
Above all, connect, and share out your hack.
