The Unsung Founders Memorial, found in McCorkle Place, reads "The class of 2012 honors the university's unsung founders- the people of color, bound and free, who helped build the Carolina that we cherish today."

Editorial: Singing the praises of the Unsung Founders

"The design of the monument invites disrespect through its accessibility and inherent purpose of serving the public. When people use it as a place to sit and eat, it is almost as though the founders are once more doing a service to the community’s more privileged members."

Column: Google thinks I'm a bad writer (and other thoughts on data collection)

Technology is so deeply intertwined with our lives that our data is at greater risk than anyone else’s. We’re on Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and so many other apps, and sharing so much of our day to day activities on them, while failing to consider how what we think is private information that can be used by these companies.

Column: Please, criticize journalists more

"Journalists hold a uniquely powerful position in society, and, as such, our mistakes can wreck lives. Criticism from the public is necessary to hold us accountable and to remind us that we, like everyone else, are fallible."
