I’m sitting at the airport again, about to embark on a five or six stop trip over the next month. Oh my! Speaking-wise, my first stop is the ACSA (Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture) annual conference in Montreal, one of my favorite cities in the world. I’m giving another paper on Cedric Price and… Continue reading Upcoming adventures
Very excited about this. I’m speaking in the Media + Modernity lecture series at Princeton on Thursday, October 14th along with my dear friend Janet Vertesi. I’ll be talking about Cedric Price and she’ll be talking about her dissertation research on images and the Mars Rover. If you’re interested, if you’re on campus or around… Continue reading Speaking at the Princeton Media + Modernity lecture series
You so wish you could attend these two conferences. But you won’t be invited. You’re more than 34 years too late. There’s “The Invisible City,” the theme of the 1972 International Design Conference Aspen. It promised to “address the implications of making the invisible city visible: of changing misuse into use and apathy into engagement.… Continue reading You really wish you could attend these conferences
Last week, I attended Google Zeitgeist and gave the “Series of Tubes” Ignite talk about the history of pneumatic tubes. The event was mindbogglingly stellar. You’ve probably seen some version of this by now, but here’s the latest. (On the Zeitgeist Minds site, they list Desmond Tutu’s talk from a previous year as a related… Continue reading Google Zeitgeist: A Series of Tubes
It’s time to bring the gospel of pneumatic tubes to Los Angeles! I’m speaking tonight at Ignite LA in Santa Monica at the V Lounge, 2020 Wilshire Blvd. Doors open at 7:30, things get underway after 8. I’m told it’s sold out but if you want to go, maybe it’s worth a shot? (If you… Continue reading Speaking tonight at Ignite LA
TONIGHT! 6:30! Can you make it? I’m speaking at the Network Architecture Lab as a part of “Discussions on Networked Publics,” a series of panels examining how technology and social changes are transforming the public realm, held at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation’s [GSAPP’s] Studio-X Soho Facility 180 Varick Street, Suite 1610… Continue reading Speaking tonight on Infrastructure, “Discussions on Networked Publics,” NYC
Just call me Fallopia. In early March, I gave an Ignite talk at eTech about pneumatic tubes– a five-minute talk where the slides advance every 15 seconds. It’s shot its way around the Internet, but I haven’t yet posted it here before. Enjoy!
Just wanted to note that I’ve not forgotten to post a recap of the Tangible Interactions in Urban Spaces panel we put together at SXSW. A few life things (see next post) have happened. I’ll post this week.
I’d been chugging along, updating Girlwonder frequently and then school started up again. Somehow, I’m now midway through my final semester of coursework at Princeton. This month is the month of conferences… today at O’Reilly’s Emerging Technology conference, I present “Shared and Sometimes Stealthy: India’s Mobile Phone.” Then, I go to my 12th South by… Continue reading Catching up
Next week and the week after, I’m going to be talking about the work I did at Microsoft Research India: an ethnographic study in Bangalore, India on mobile phone sharing and how it plays out in domestic and urban space. I’d love to see you there. In New York, I’ll be speaking on Wednesday, September… Continue reading Mobile Modalities: Sharing Mobile Phones in Urban India
