Day Two

Well, day one of Postopolis! is now history – and it was a blast. We had some phenomenal presentations, from Robert Krulwich, Tobias Frere-Jones, and Stanley Greenberg; we heard from Michael Kubo, of Actar, about architectural book publishing; we managed our way through a pecha kucha featuring this blog, City of Sound, Inhabitat, and Subtopia; we drank beer; and I thought the whole thing was great.

There are some problems with audio, on the other hand, which means that a great deal of the evening’s visitors didn’t actually hear anything… but we’ll work on that. (If you did come out and heard nothing, I apologize!)
Meanwhile, City of Sound has just posted some great action shots from the day, including a live-blogged summary of Robert Krulwich‘s presentation; and I’ve got a small Flickr set forming, and there is a Postopolis! Flickr group taking shape, as well.
Today, meanwhile, Wednesday, May 30, you’ll be hearing from:

1:30pm: Benjamin Aranda & Chris Lasch
2:10pm: Matthew Clark
4:00pm: Panel on sustainable design with Susan Szenasy, Allan Chochinov, Graham Hill, and Jill Fehrenbacher (moderated by Jill)
5:30pm: Scott Marble
6:10pm: Paul Seletsky
6:50pm: Ada Tolla & Giuseppe Lignano
7:30pm: Michael Sorkin & Mitchell Joachim

So please come out! And say hello. Be advised, meanwhile, that Michael Sorkin might not be able to attend; we’ll only know when the time comes round.

And I’ll keep updating everyone as the week goes on – but, for those not in NYC or who frankly don’t care about Postopolis!, I’ll hopefully have at least one or two new posts in the forthcoming days.

  1. I thought a pecha kucha was a group dance involving spinning ’til dizzy, call-and-response screams of PECHA! …KUCHA! and hats with rainbow tassels on top… Too bad wikipedia spoiled my illusions yet again

  2. ahhh new york… how’s the weather?
    since moving to LA, i so often think about nyc and my od brooklyn neighborhood.
