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?

Розповідати історії про українських підприємців — це круто.
Про проект «Бізнес-план», який я з командою знімаю для «Настоящее время» і Hromadske.ua, а також радіошоу «Власники» на aristocrats.fm, завдяки якому він став можливий. Про те, як важливо не забувати про свою ідею, навіть якщо її десять разів відхилили. Про те, як навчаєшся керувати колективом, знаходити компроміси, розбиратися в технічних деталях, яких ніколи не знав. І що найважливіше — про те, скільки навколо крутих людей роблять круті речі. І чому я вважаю таким важливим розповідати про це світу.
No, I Don't Eat Fish (or How My Parents Proved Everyone Wrong and Raised Tall Children)

This is a story of what it means to be a vegetarian and how this tall healthy woman proved stereotypes against vegetarians wrong.

We often place limits on what we can do and what we have the potential of achieving. We often underestimate how far one can go and the ultimatum of terminating or continuing. In every aspect of life, there is something called Stamina, not just in sport.
The aim of Habib Noorbhai's inspiring, enthused, and motivated talk will be geared towards what and how you can see through your desired goals, accomplishments and targets.

Adele Bates gives us an insight into being locked in a room full of teenagers and the surprising amount of engagement that grew when questions they actually want to know were anwered. Bates shows us the amount of interest teenagers can have when it comes to learning despite their negative stereotypes. Adele's unique outlook on education and youths challenges us to see children -our future- as a vast amount of knowledge and opportunity rather than burdons or misifits.

PKN Comes to Krakow
One of the latest cities to join the PechaKucha Night family, Krakow has now confirmed that its Vol. 1 is set to happen October 17 (from 21:00) at the Laznia Nowa theatre. Organizer Artur Bialy sends in this essay on what sounds like a terrific venue. Łaźnia Nowa is the youngest theater in Cracow. It is placed in Nowa Huta – the youngest and the most mysteriuos district of the city. As our residence we use postindustrial halls, in which young blue collar workers of The W.Lenin Mettalurgical Industrial Complex were trained. Just a few years ago lathes, milling machines and other machines were still used in these rooms. You can even still smell machine grease, though the spirit in here is completely different. The scene, the audience, spectacles, concerts and exhibitions...everything to complete the transformation of this place. Grey blocks of flats, lots of greenery, some church crosses and huge supermarkets. This is the scenery that surrounds our theater. For some beautiful, for other cursed. Nowa Huta always used to evoke such radical emotions. This place used to be ruled by history. Since it`s creation Nowa Huta was a test paper of all political and social changes. Inhabitiants of this district were marked by history and ideas. Maybe that is the reason why changes of '89 were so hard for them. At first the beloved child of communistic regime, the city without god, built in opposition to conservative Cracow, then the heart of resistance and “Solidarnosc” -- in which many fights for human freedom and dignity took place, one of John Paul II's favourite places, afterwards free trade, downfall of The Industrial Complex and...oblivion. Huta wasn't important anymore. The inhabitiants had their memories and a travesty of industrial district. Mass media soon named it as the most dangerous city area. 250 thousand people were sentenced to stereotype. Our work is an objection to such viewing of this district. People want to be, live and to work here. Discouragment, indifference and apathy are everywhere and you always got to fight them with consistent work and persistence. I believe that every kind of creative activity has a affrimative message. It comes out in the very act of creation. Basic message: Do not be afraid to speak for yourself, take initiative and if you do not like something try to change it by yourself. By our activity we encourage to this. In Łaźnia Nowa we want to create a place where actors and inhabitians of Nowa Huta are both feeling good... Nowa Huta is an inspiration. Bartosz Szydłowski Director/Główny Łaziebny
PKN Vilnius Vol. 1
PechaKucha Night made its debut in Vilnius back in January, and although they also had an event during the "Global PechaKucha Day for Haiti" in February, here's a look back at Vol. 1, with the following report from organizer Benas Plentas-Buivydas. On January 28th the first event of PechaKucha Night Vilnius hit the city with great success. Vilnius PechaKucha Vol. 1 took place in the heart of Vilnius' old town at the underground bar "Woo," and was overcrowded by people. The evening’s lineup included the designer of the newest Lithuanian Country logotype, an architect presenting a project on how to decorate the embankments of Vilnius' river Neris, a presentation on the Vilnius city marathon, a presentation on a young female design company, a very hot presentation by a designer of female underwear, and the presentation by a speleologist about the Lithuanian caving record. The highlight, however, turned out to be a presentation made by a Vilnius-born easy-going guy named Vytautas, who unexpectedly enthroned a very sensitive issue about the false image and stereotype of the second biggest city in Lithuania, and also in an easy form advised how to solve the problem using popular social networks.
