TIME Project in El Paso
BY RIDA ASFAHANI
@ VOL 11
ON OCT 10, 2015
“We're really trying to change the way things are done in El Paso by letting people know that density is a good thing, letting people know that investing in local talent is something that can be really nice and really beneficial for… the people around you.”
In The TIME Project in El Paso from PechaKucha Night El Paso’s 11th Volume, presenter Rida Asfahani describes Root Architect's TIME project. An urban density, mixed use, this spectacular third space brings people together in west El Paso. Using locally sourced materials, commissioning local talent, and trying to overall draw from the local culture, the project successfully managed to create a space that was unique.

Bill Stelling (at PKN Tokyo Vol. 97) spins us some historical thread on the legendary "Fun Gallery" he co-founded in the 1980s.

Hop hop hop! The Weimar co-op is going on well forward! With the new poster designed by Tereza we took off to catch the attention of potential speakers for the first PKN in Weimar. The response is good: we already gathered 6 confirmations from presenters which gives a nice minimum for a good PechaKucha to take place! This means there are only 6 more places left as we think to limit the evening to 12 presentations. At some special point we will also connect with Tokio during the Global Wave!

Safecast: Real-time Hyper-local Information
"It's a little bit like Google Street View, it's the same idea ...with radiation." From PKN Tokyo’s recent "Powered by PechaKucha: Tohoku 2020: Building a sustainable Post-3/11 Future" Pieter Franken Presents Safecast: Real-time Hyper-local Information. In our technologically saturated age, it is hypothetically easy to share data instantaneously with others. After the Tohoku Earthquake, Pieter and what would eventually become the Safecast.org Team realized that information about the radiation levels couldn’t be spread as it didin’t exist. After connecting to minds, companies, and volunteers – both in Japan and abroad– an open-source system was developed that could quickly collect, record, and share radiation level information.
