Story Time

BY JOSEPHINE CAMARILLO
@ VOL 4 ON NOV 13, 2015

Josephine Caramillo shares her enthusiasm for story time as education and entertainment, empowering children with knowledge and confidence to be their own superheroes through story time. As illustrated by her programs, a library can provide for more than the development of a love of books and literacy, it can provide for the development of children’s motor skills, social skills and more.

From Siberia to Texas: Uncovering My Family’s Immigration Story One Recipe at a Time

BY MARY KALTENBERG
@ VOL 33 ON MAY 22, 2017

Mary Kaltenberg best introduces her story herself:

"It started during a blizzard storm the first week I arrived back in the United States early 2016. As an activity for my mom and I during this cold snowy day, we gathered recipes and started compiling them into a cohesive cookbook. I asked questions about the origination of the recipe and through each recipe lived a different story. Translating and transcribing developed into a documentation of our family history, rich of funny, suspenseful and adventurous stories. One recipe at a time I uncovered the story of my Jewish, Russian, Polish family - how they became a family, survived in Siberia, were deported and stripped of citizenship and the humor of eventually adapting to American culture."

Changing the rules of our reality with technology

BY JOHN KREISHER
@ VOL 18 ON FEB 23, 2018

John Kreisher is an engineer and futurist with a passion for disruptive technology as a vehicle for systemic change and expanding human awareness. The rise of clean energy, the Internet of Things, and a sharing economy give us the opportunity to move into a zero marginal cost society, but we need to collectively change our thoughts about what is real and possible. Capitalism has bred fear and scarcity consciousness, a sharing economy will breed connection and abundance consciousness!

Thus Spake Statis Beatnik

BY STEWART MORRIS
@ VOL 11 ON SEP 06, 2018

Aligned with the PechaKucha principle to 'think visual', digital creative Statis Beatnik believes that "words are very limited in being able to explain many of the most important human experiences. Try to explain the colour blue and you'll see an infinite amount of words it takes in comparison to showing just one image". In this vivid presentation, he shares his views on humanity and speculates on possible digital futures.
