Brian Feldman and his father sustain a 24 hour embrace on Father’s Day, inside the boxing ring at Orange Ave Gym.

Spectators are welcome to enter the ring and embrace a loved one after the 12th hour.

“24 Hour Embrace” was first performed by artist Young Sun Han at Swimming Pool Project Space in Chicago, Illinois on December 31, 2008.

“24 Hour Embrace (after Young Sun Han)” marks the first time that Young Sun Han has granted permission to re-perform this piece, as well as the first time that Brian Feldman has re-performed another artist’s work.

John Rife is one of the original founding members of Florida Creatives in Orlando, and now he joins us to talk about his adventures in blogging about local food, and his experience planning the first-ever Winter Park Harvest Festival. The festival will be held in Central Park on Nov 20th, just a few days before Thanksgiving. Local farmers and tons of others will have their wares on display. You can think local, grow, learn, taste, listen and play, with a "Farm to Table" dinner at the end.

Awesome Local Interviews by The Daily City

Since I have been thinking about recording some more episodes of the Florida Creatives Podcast, I was wondering if anyone else has been doing good local downloadable content. We have Radio Rickshaw and Front Porch Radio producing stuff, as well as CMF Public Media and the local WMFE and WUCF stations. Several years ago, Mark Baratelli of the popular Daily City blog produced a show called the Orlando Arts Podcast, but now he will just periodically post mp3 files and players on his site. This can make the content hard to find, so I have created a list.

Orlando Chamber - Friendly to Startups?

0 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

I was talking with Pete McAlindon, the creator of a product called the orbiTouch, and a Central Florida entreprener today, and he mentioned something interesting.

Orlando Chamber of Commerce

He says the Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce wants to make itself more friendly to entrepreneurs and startups. I showed him our Florida Creatives YouNoodle group.

He also pointed to a really interesting site: Boulder.me - it's pretty neat, and it makes me want to check out Boulder for sure.
