Social Media Week iPhone APP: Vanessa VobisLos Angeles is hosting part of Social Media Week, this week!  Featuring an array of workshops, parties, talks, and online components, the distributed conference is proceeding in all parts the networked world.  I’m excited to give a SMW talk this Wednesday at USC’s Institute for Multimedia Literacy.  It’s open to the public, so please feel free to attend.

A Green Lens: Special Talk on the Natural History Museum by Vanessa Vobis
Wednesday, September 22, 2010 at 6:30 PM (PT)

The talk will intertwine three components via a historical timeline: The Los Angeles County Natural History Museum, my creative work, and a hands-on workshop. Here’s what will happen: I’ll start out with my timeline (including videos) and each time a new historical change occurs in the timeline, materials will be placed on the table (for the workshop).  By the end of my timeline/talk all materials will be on the table to construct individual vivarium jars by each participant.   I’ll procure all materials (including containers), but feel free to bring along your own jars or plants to share.
