Prince Fred, nobility itself. Feeling much gratitude to Miranda for taking good care of this guy while I’m away.

Damn fine! Team Modo test drives an uber sexy #tesla with the dream of being the 1st coop to share one… #modocarcoop #vancouver #carsharing #car #auto #ev (at Modo. The Car Co-op)
It kills me to have to miss this rad event put on by the GDC as part of its Practivism series. Kills me. Jer Thorpe is a hero, if you’re into data visualization, and the topic couldn’t be more relevant to our time. Plus, Amanda Gibbs moderates a panel that includes Alex Beim, who designed that super rad interactive LED chandelier grid at the now shuttered W2 Media Cafe (#RIP) and Storyeum before that.
Please tell me how it is if you go!
JOIN US AS WE EXPLORE:
Data, Sustainability, and Opportunity
We are surrounded by the opportunity to affect positive sustainable change on the world we live in — in our homes, communities, work places, and surrounding environments. Within all of these contexts, is the space for individuals to embrace a challenge and discover better, more meaningful, longer lasting solutions. You can choose to solve a problem and have meaningful sustainable impact. There is the opportunity for all of us to become a #Practivist.
Practivism 6 will explore these opportunities that lay in front of each of us, within the vast amount of data we pass by on a daily basis. Keynote speaker Jer Thorp will be sharing with us his perspectives on the role of data and its inherent opportunities. Come join us for an evening of exploration and education as we discover new and better ways to have a positive affect on the world around us.
Jer Thorp is the co-founder of The Office for Creative Research, a multi-disciplinary team that is actively exploring new modes of engagement with data. From 2010 to 2012, Jer was the Data Artist in Residence at the New York Times R&D Group. He is an adjunct Professor in New York University’s ITP program, and a member of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Design Innovation.
A panel discussion with Alex Beim (@tangibleint Tangible Interaction), Casey Hrynkow (@HerraincoBrand Herrainco Brand Strategy + Design), and Eric Karjaluoto (@karj SmashLab), moderated by Amanda Gibbs (@asgibbs Public Assembly) will further explore the possibilities and challenge individuals to take action — to envision and mobilize a better future.
Come join us as we listen, share, debate, and plan.
If you’ve been to the Make It! Art and Craft Show you’ll understand why we’re excited to join as Community Partner for this year’s Vancouver event.
Running November 28 to December 1, the popular Make It! Vancouver show brings the handmade revolution to a new, enormous venue – the PNE Forum.
MAKE IT! PROMOTION & FREE PARKING
Mention Modo’s “Make It! Promotion” to our Member Care team when signing up, and we’ll give you $35 carsharing credit! If you’re a vendor, you’ll receive $50 carsharing credit!
Not only will Modo help you get your loot home safe and sound, but using Modo has another advantage: free parking! While parking at the PNE is going to cost you $10 (actually, you pay $15 up front then have to go into the show and get $5 back – total hassle, right?), Modo drivers get free parking in all permit and resident-only parking zones, which surround the venue. Hooray for carsharing!
"I come from a long line of strong women." Love this poster from Purple Thistle artist @Jotikart. #modoarthunt #culturecrawl
#modoarthunt: I hit 3 clues with 1 piece: Takes my breath away; wildlife; also blue. #culturecrawl painter Sasha Lozaic says he was inspired by a Sydney Pollack film for this very epic, 15-ft wide painting. I covet so very much. (1000 Parker)
