Urban ReThink - hopefully you have all heard of it by now - has started hosting a local discussion about the future called ReThinking the City. This event is meant to challenge our assumptions about how people live, work and play in the modern world, and bring in awesome guest speakers, either in person or via Skype.

Parking at Urban ReThink

We will be co-locating our event this month, and see how it goes. Ryan Price has also volunteered to give one of the talks. The program will likely run from 7 to 8, so our regular happy hour will hug that. Everyone last month seemed to support this idea, but feedback is welcome.

Some day soon will be the last Nomads event, then we will try to decide on a regular spot.

Tonight! Here are some

Tonight! Here are some details about the event:

ReThinking the City is a monthly symposium that considers the possibilities of an urban environment. It takes place every 4th Tuesday of each month at 6:25PM. We usually have three presentations, two local ones, that are Pecha Kucha type, 20 slides, 20 seconds each. We follow up each presentation with a short Q and A that lasts about the same length as the presentation.The panel of Eliza Harris, Dr. Julian Chambliss, Pat Greene along with that months presenters will facilitate the discussion.

The local presentations are followed by a Skype presentation. This months Skype presentation will be with Pittsburgh's Dawn Weleski who helps run the Conflict Kitchen http://www.conflictkitchen.org/. The Conflict Kitchen serves cuisines from countries that the USA is in conflict with. The idea is to bring a face to the culture.

Mark Baratelli who is the mastermind of the great Orlando blog the Daily City will also be presenting. http://www.thedailycity.com/

John Rife who has been very succesful at showing urbanites a more sensible way to live, and eat will be the other local presenter.
