Human self-expression and communication through art can be dated back to 32,000 years ago with the earliest of cave paintings. ROCKiTspace is a non-profit organization dedicated to making music and art available to its Beacon Hill, Seattle community.
In this three-part video interview Jessie McKenna discusses their vision of becoming a community hub and services, which range from a full music practice music and art studio to hypnotherapy workshops. She also discusses how they built their online community using Ning. Much of their equipment was donated by community members, such as a Rhodes keyboard from Day Moon Press across the street.
***ROCKiTspace is also sponsoring a Beacon Rocks! live music summer concert series next to the new (beautiful) Beacon Hill Light Rail Station.

With so many training folks on Twitter, I created a “Hello my Name is” Twitter sticker for attendees to wear and make the Twitter name exchange must faster.
Jeff Tillett and I will be handing these out at our presentation on using rapid video with training (session TH305TI), which will include three hands-on workshop stations with real equipment and props.
Feel free to download and print this 3”x5” Twitter sticker to write your Twitter user name.
See you at ASTD TechKnowledge 2010!

Technology can be used to amplify, enhance and extend how we share information. We can engage in one-to-many conversations using mobile devices and share real-time video using tools like Qik. Not since the invention of the printing press, has the world seen such a revolutionary shift in communication.
While reading Problogger, I found this inspirational video showing how Glenda Watson Hyatt uses blogging to connect with people in a very revolutionary way. Glenda is a web accessibility consultant who was tasked to investigate the accessiblity of the blogging platform WordPress. She describes the evolution her written word from email to “hitting the publish button” for her first blog post.
