Do you want to ‘join the revolution’ and be part of the Frequency 13 team? Two LSM Senior Lecturers, and University of Lincoln alumni, produced this year’s fabulous Frequency trailer to promote Lincoln’s Digital Culture Festival, 18-26 October. David McSherry and Graham Cooper are part of the Frequency 13 team. The fest team said:
