I recently had the pleasure of returning to the PICNIC Festival in Amsterdam for a week of fabulous people and big bold ideas. This was my 3rd year speaking at the festival and IMHO it continues to be the greatest gathering of people focused on exciting new ways to combine new technologies, collaborative community practices, with urbanism, art and media to make a better world.
This year I was honored to give a keynote presentation focused on Playful Communities and Urban Experiments - drawing on recent projects like Snap-Shot-City, The Awesome Foundation DC, 24 Hour City Project, and DCWEEK. The full presentation is below:
It was a busy conference this year, and I was also honored to host a panel on The Social Capital of Collaborative Platforms, and participate in the Vodaphone Firestarters Talkshow on Gaming with Benefits.
