Cardboard Castles and Other Amenities...

I am really interested in using different forms of cultural action to help build better communities. Communities are a vital social model, allowing us to tackle problems beyond the ability of individuals with the focus of a defined (usually relatively small) group of people. How do the arts and cultural work in general help communities grow more sustainable futures? If you have a cool website or project or your own ideas on these subjects please let me know.

Data Visualization is Sweet

I am a huge fan of data visualizers both because they make it easier to process information and because they demonstrate the malleability of information. What information is considered “important” or “relevant” enough to be included is of huge importance to the story that is told. Here is a cool visualization of the Alberta Gonzala Congressional testimony form Many Eyes, a website that allows you to create your own visualization.
