One of the guiding principles behind Nuñez Daughter and iwannalive productions and, well, the ‘Net, is that making media should be as cost free as possible. Computers and internet access are already very, very expensive (net neutrality is good for #blackgirls). No one should have to pay hundreds of dollars for word processing or photo editing software, blog editors, and storage on top of that. Unofficially, 90% of the tools used to make and maintain Nuñez Daughter and iwannalive productions are free of charge.
A favorite tool of ours is Picnik.
