Human Factors News Monthly Roundup (April 2021)

Hey everyone, at the end of the month we are trying something different by posting a roundup of the Human Factors News stories we've found throughout the month.  We feel this will likely serve as a better way to disseminate the news as a monthly roundup. By approaching it this way, we accomplish two goals:

  1.  The content is contained all in one place! We'll even pull in stories shared from members of our Slack and Discord communities so nothing is missed.
  2. This allows us to share these news stories on our other social platforms (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) to help spread the news to others who may not be a part of the chat communities.

Below you'll find two categories of news stories:

  1. Our Top News Stories - These consist of news stories that we have featured on our weekly podcast. If you are not familiar with the show, we let our Patreons decide which topics we discuss on the show from these types of news stories.
  2. Human Factors News - These consist of news stories that we have not covered on the show, but are still worthy of sharing!

If you're curious at all as to how we find and sort through this news, join Nick on Twitch for his office hours, every Tuesday from 11:00AM-12:00PM Pacific, 2:00PM-3:00PM Eastern.
