TED Prize Winner Cameron Sinclair in Dialog at MOCA Cleveland Talaly Lecture

Last week's gathering here at Case Western Reserve University on Collaboration Technology and Community Engagement engendered plenty of conversation on extending the 'networked collaboration tools' to engage students, faculty, staff, and the broader community around us.

Anthony Williams, co-author of Wikinomics and keynoter at the Summit shared the impact of collaboration tools across an amazing breadth of social, economic, and learning environments (to the many who have asked, yes, Anthony's keynote will be available as a video stream --soon). One of my favorite TED Prize winners is architect and community activist and maverick open source humanitarian Cameron Sinclair. Cameron has leveraged collaborative tools for engaging both hundreds of architects (Architecture for Humanity) around the world but also engaging those architects in dozens and dozens of community projects both near and far. For folks in Cleveland, you have an opportunity to join us in dialog with Cameron Sinclair at MOCA Cleveland's Talalay Lecture being held on Wednesday, May 21, at 6 pm at the Idea Center in Playhouse Square here in Cleveland.

The devastation in Mynamar and China over the past 10 days provides a graphic backdrop for some of the conversation on socially-engaged architecture. Please join us, if you're in the neighborhood. For a backgrounder on Cameron see his TED talk below
