A couple of weeks ago I prepared an exhaustive retrospective of my Pervasive Interactive Technologies, which I then presented to a group of professionals down in Monterey.Our digital media approach in Project Happiness was included as a current example of how many of the pervasive techniques are playing out in yet another a real-life project.
Next Monday, November 19th, 4pm to 5pm at MediaX (Wallenberg Hall, Stanford University campus, Palo Alto CA), we’ll be conducting a presentation and deconstruction of the ideas behind the media approach in Project Happiness. To attend, please locate Wallenberg Hall in the Stanford map, and join us by 4pm. We will start on time, as our use of the media-rich room is strictly limited. If you’d like to join us, please let us know and we’ll reserve a place for you. Read more and see the video…Project Happiness, in its online form, is a place where teens (ages 16-19) can share video and photographic media. They locate existing online media, or they create their own, and then create portfolios of works in order to illustrate points they’d like to make. Although we are built around classrooms and teachers, which leverages our tiny central staff, the project is world-wide in scope.
The trailer (below) will give you a quick introduction to the documentary we’re making about the inception of the project.
