I was playing around with Google Maps the other day, and came across the Create Map functionality which allows users to plot their own locations. Soon after, I had plotted a few of my favorite places around Charlottetown. I know it’s nothing new, but I’m just starting to see its potential.
The map, embedded above, is something I’m going to keep up with. It’s part personal archive of favorite places, part local-guy-crafted tourist guide. There’s only seven locations on it now, but it’ll grow.
So, months before I ever filmed the first Campus Sessions video, the fine folks at This Town is Small were producing a series of—you guessed it—local artists performing live in public spaces.
As soon as I saw it, my heart sank a bit. I don’t know if any of the aforementioned fine folks are even familiar with the aforementioned Campus Sessions, but they are similar enough that I’m sure they assume I’m a big dumb copy cat.
I honestly had no idea this project existed until this morning, but I still need to give them props for coming up with the idea (and executing it beautifully) first.
These stickers are starting to pop up on garbage cans around campus. The QR code links to a video I finished a few weeks ago which highlights how UPEI’s garbage is sorted and processed after it’s dropped in these waste stations.
Hope to do more of this in the future. Would love to hear some thoughts on where future QR codes could be located on campus (and what they could link to).
We’ve been going to the Dundas Plowing Match as a family for the past couple of years. The “plowin’ match”—as it is colloquially known—is an annual country fair held in Dundas (yes, that Dundas), PEI, in late August.
I’ve taken photos while there the past couple of years, but this year, I decided I’d switch the camera into video mode and make a short film.
You can see it in HD on Vimeo, if you’re a resolution snob like me.
