ROCK ON!!! I mean really, truly ROCK ON! and Bummer all at the same time!
I first saw Cameron Sinclair and his Architecture for Humanity project when I watched “TED: The Future We Will Create” … ok, here is where I reveal how totally geeky I really am… I LOVED this movie. LOVED IT. The TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) website: http://www.ted.com/ is truly one of my favorite sites… its one of the sites I visit most often. They are always updating it with stuff.
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope has become ever broader.
The annual conference now brings together the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes).
Our mission: Spreading ideas.
We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. So we’re building here a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world’s most inspired thinkers, and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other.
By tapping a network of professionals willing to lend their time and their talents to helping those who would not otherwise be able to afford their services, we support community development, help communities rebuild after disaster and provide pro bono design services to community partners around the world.
In 2007 we launched the Open Architecture Network, the first site on the Web to provide access to open source architectural plans.
Anyway… Cameron Sinclair is COMING HERE! (and I can’t go… see… bummer!!!)
On Wednesday October 10th, Cameron Sinclair, co-founder of Architecture for Humanity, and co-author of
