Technology, at its core, is a tool to make our daily lives easier. It can spread information, entertain us, and help us communicate with one another. Nate Damen explores how technology can remind us we are all humans with the desire for loving social interaction, as well as bridge the online and physical world through a project called Atltvhead- a wearable communication device constructed out of a 1960's era television.

Safecast: Real-time Hyper-local Information
BY PIETER FRANKEN
"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 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.

Sharing information can be a challenge. Making the best knowledge available to the right people in your organization takes time and effort. The pace of change, the time it takes to write and maintain good documentation and our busy schedules all present roadblocks to effectively produce and disseminate information.
