Mapping the Stories of a City: Sarah Lawrence at TEDxUGA

My TEDxUGA talk is up on Youtube! I’m so excited to finally see it up in action, because I hadn’t gotten a chance to preview my talk yet. This video is the result of a four month long panic attack, and then finally working up the nerve to stand in front of 400 people. It was exciting, it was scary, and I look forward to exploring this collaborative mapping project in the future.

“Collaborative mapping ties people together and makes them part of the larger story, the larger narrative of the city. Because of these maps, we stop being individuals and we become a community; a community with a past, a present, and a future.”
