City Message

@ VOL 7 ON NOV 21, 2013

Massimiliano Bonacci presenta City Message:

City Message è un circuito di schermi distribuiti nella città e utilizzato per scambiarsi informazioni fra Commercianti, Associazioni, Pubblica Amministrazione e Cittadini, in tempo reale e con l'ausilio anche solo di un semplice smartphone. Noi vogliamo:

• Creare un nuovo strumento di comunicazione dove tutti possano sentirsi partecipi.
• Portare internet e i Social Network nelle piazze e nei negozi, in modo che anche chi non sa usare questi mezzi possa rimanere aggiornato su ciò che accade nella città.
• Aiutare la Pubblica Amministrazione a comunicare con i cittadini.
• Dare visibilità anche alle piccole realtà territoriali.
• Incoraggiare la condivisione e la partecipazione delle persone, alle iniziative del quartiere.

Sono uscito quest'anno da Ericsson, dopo 21 anni di lavoro, dove ho acquisito una discreta esperienza internazionale. L'idea di Citymessage è nata a livello embrionale all'interno dell'Innovation Garage di Ericsson, vincendo anche premi in Silicon Valley come l' "Innova Award". Quando mi sono reso conto che per svilupparla sarei dovuto espatriare, perché non relativa al core business delle attività italiane, ho deciso di prendere la buona uscita come opportunità di far nascere qualcosa nella mia città e nel mio paese!

PKN St. Petersburg on TV

PKN Bahrain on TV

httpv:// Sure, it may be in Arabic, but it's great to see the organizers of PechaKucha Night in Bahrain be interviewed on Bahrain TV's Hala Bahrain morning show. As organizer Mohammed Janahi tells us, the reason for the scarves was in celebration of the country's National Day.

Animated Graphics for Australian TV, an Intro the Color Wheel, and a Doom Clock from Vladimir

Presentations Tim Costello has worked in Australia's television industry for the past 10 years, creating animated graphics for a variety of TV shows, which he shares in this presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 93). He also worked on the feature film Where the Wild Things Are. In her presentation (in German, from PKN Aalen Vol. 6), Annegret Barth wants to introduce us to the interplay of colors. Using photos from nature, Annegret walks us through the development of the color wheel and its possible applications. (in German) We don't have a full presentation to share, but PKN Vladimir organizer Boris Matin has sent us the following photos (above) and description of this rather interesting participant at the city's recent Vol. 6.Sergei Karelin is a silversmith and goldsmith, a member of the Union of Artists of Russia, and an academic at the Petrovskaya Academy of Science and Art in St. Petersburg. The clock (in the photos) shows the countdown of the time from the moment of the Birth of the Earth to the moment of its collapse, owing to its inevitable approach to the Sun. The work calls for the drawing together of world religions, the union of all nations, and the immediate stop of all war conflicts in the face of the fatal disaster. Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, one for this month's PKN Waterville Vol. 8 (pictured above), and one for PKN Chattanooga Vol. 11, also happening later this month.  Video Pisa's Vol. 2 is happening this Friday, and today we have a video promo to share for the event.  Calendar On this 4th of July, we may not have any PKNs happening in the US, but we do have these two events: PKN Amsterdam Vol. 22 and PKN Utsunomiya Vol. 1.
