Camp Gastown
The deadline is quickly approaching for the end of submissions to the Canada CODE website as part of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games. Canada CODE is part of the digital edition, CODE, of the 2010 Cultural Olympiad. CODE is made up of four parts: CODE Live, an 18 music and digital media festival, CODE Screens 2010, an interactive journey that brings the art to your home computer, CODE Motion Pictures, which is a film line-up of commissioned short films from Canadian filmmakers and Canada CODE, a user-generated photo, text and remix experience. The coolest thing is that all of the content that is uploaded to the Canada CODE website, including remixes, will be put into a pool of potential material that could appear on the giant projection screens during the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games.

The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games are right around the corner and the town is buzzing. Every set of Olympic Games has a separate cultural line-up that showcases the country’s communities in the arts, theatre and music. This line-up is curated by the Cultural Olympiad by every host city and runs parallel to the official sporting events through out the host city. Vancouver is putting its name on the historical map by adding an additional component to its Cultural Olympiad 2010 called the Cultural Olympiad Digital Edition, or CODE for short.

Doin’ It For The Love – Reflections On The Future At ‘Journalism That Matters’ Conference - Comments (4)

Solidarity - United Nations Climate Change Conference - COP15 - Copenhagen, Denmark
This weekend I’m in Seattle for the Journalism that Matters conference taking place at the University of Washington in Seattle. Journalists, photographers, media-makers and documentarians will gather for this three day event, to discuss issues that are effecting the world today. This conference is set-up as an open space, “un-conference” where the participants determine the actual content of the conference days, and the schedule, though structured, is flexible in attendance and movement.

Within the last few years, a visible divide has emerged between all media with this idea of new media versus traditional media. It doesn’t really make much sense to divide media into two sparring factions when in fact they can be working and collaborating together. I often find myself in the citizen journalist role, not so much by my strive for journalistic photo features but more by my own personal documentation that I funnel to the internet. I have been known to say that “if you didn’t stick it on the internet, it didn’t happen.” This often arises fits of laughter, but most people find this statement very true. This extends past your twitter and facebook, but into hyper-local citizen journalism as well.
