Thx to friend and collegue Ryan Holmes for wrapping up my tenure as President of Raincity Studios so eloquently. ;)

“Kris is a dynamic figure, often seen scaling walls and crushing ice. He has been known to remodel train stations on his lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the areas of heat retention. He translates ethnic slurs for Cuban refugees, Occasionally, he treads water for three days in a row.

He woos women with his sensuous and god like photography, can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed, and can cook Thirty-Minute Brownies in twenty minutes. He is an expert in stucco, a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Peru.

I’m giving a talk tonight in Calgary to a group of event planners. They want to know how they can use new tools and strategies to plan and manage their events. I’m gonna start with a lil philosophical talk about citizen journalism & media making as well as particpatory group culture and principles and move on to a bunch of tools and tactics people can start implementing today. Here’s a copy of the slides I’ll use.

Over the past 5 years I’ve been involved in various event planning and management activities as a part of my community development work. I’m on the organizing committee of Northern Voice & BarCamp Vancouver. I plan regular PhotoWalks and PhotoCamps for photographers in Vancouver and around the world. I helped organize the first BarCamp in China with Robert Scales and others in 2006 and advise and consult to a variety of other events from the Canadian New Media Awards to South By Southwest in Austin, TX.
