Stephen Kovash explains why he turned off all social media platforms as well as other forms of electronic entertainment in order to have face to "facetime" with other human beings. He hopes this presentation encourages others to turn off their phones and talk in person.

Social Media : Writing On The Wall
BY DELWIN KEASBERRY
@ VOL 1
ON NOV 01, 2014
Through social media, we are more connected and informed than ever before. Delwin Keasberry, a social media personality, points out the imbalance which exist in the face of ‘hot topics’ between those few with quick and assured opinions. So strong are their voices that they drown out the moderators, and the crowd. On the other hand, there are those who remain silent and wait for the storm to blow over. Though some of us choose to stand apart, we are not unaffected by these kinds of situations. Are we doomed to intemperate viewpoints dominating the world of social media? Can we imagine being part of the movement that is willing to push the gap between these two extremes and grow into better adjusted social networking community?

Posts illustrate the past, present and future of Christchurch, which is particularly pertinent given all that was lost in the earthquakes.

Jouw internet gedrag genereerd data die o.a. gebruikt wordt voor het genereren van online advertenties. Maar hoe persoonlijk en invloedrijk zijn die advertenties werkelijk? Vormen we ons naar het gegeven stereotype omdat we niets anders meer zien?
FACE-book - FACE-zination
BY ILONA WEIRICH
@ VOL 2
ON JUN 22, 2018
Jeden Tag. Immer. Wir alle tun es. Und wir überlegen oft, wie der Mensch wohl ist, den wir da sehen. Schnell haben wir ihn in eine Schublade gesteckt. Aber - Menschen passen in keine Schublade. Jede Form gibt eine In-FORM-ation. Kommt mit auf diese Reise auf die kleinste Bühne der Welt - schaut einmal hinter den Vorhang. Und lest mit, was im FACE-book steht, denn es ist face-zinierend.
BY ANDREW BLAIR
@ VOL 35
ON SEP 06, 2018
Artist Andrew Blair is an artist who prefers more traditional media and whose prime subject matter is the human face. His portraits can be described as expressive, both in terms of what the faces show, and in the nuances of his techniques. Andrew walks us through his work and his ideas, and shows us how else he's engaging the community-at-large with his art in this PechaKucha Night Winnipeg talk.
Andrew's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 35, on September 6, 2018, at the Park Theatre.
