Official Blurb:

“Don’t miss this “Fireside Chat” with Dave Olson, an experienced public presenter who informs and entertains with a unique style including numerous visual aids, analog artifacts and interactive activities.

Dave’s presentations always inspire fresh thinking by evoking the spirit of historical luminaries remixed with anecdotes from 17+ years in web tech and travel to 30 countries.

This time around, he’ll riff on topics about future-proofing, disappearing content, the importance of archiving, media research, and documenting and publishing artifacts with an eye towards forever. Along the way will be anecdotes about Radiouserland, Samuel Peyps, Clayoquot blockades, and exploration of other forms of what we now call “social media.”

Yesterday, I was feeling the blues hard but I got out a bunch of artifacts from recent wanders and a stack of scrapbooks I’ve been filling up over the last year and a half since the onset of my illness.

Did a lot of gluing in cutting and bindering. So much content i produce & collect!

It occurs to me that I could spend the rest of my life editing myself, but I have so many more stories to tell and contextualize.

Love the thrill of finishing another unexpected project which combines art, culture, tech, history, & renegades–especially the forgotten ones.
