    When I realized it was snowing tonight I couldn’t help myself but to go out and snap some photos…I found people sliding on sidewalks, taxis slipping all over the road and even one accident.

    Knight Foundation merging media, minds, and money →

    $18.4m in grants are fostering a ‘critical mass’ of Boston-area tech outreach projects

    Thanks to its concentration of high-tech activity and educational institutions, the Boston area has reaped a considerable amount of that funding - $18.4 million in grants to 19 projects.

    “Because of Knight, we now have a critical mass of community, technology, and media projects,’’ said Eric Gordon, the creator of the Boston public school-based project Community PlanIt and an associate professor of visual media arts at Emerson College.

    “It’s an exciting time to be here,’’ he said. “What’s coming out of Boston is going to change what’s happening around the country.’’


    NOTE: Eric Gordon, quoted above, is an advisor on Hollow and will help develop how to approach getting the community involved in a meaningful way.

    I bought the GoPro Hero2 a couple days ago and plan on using it to shoot night/day timelapses (among other shots) for Hollow. Tested it out this morning here in Boston.

    Photo-Documentary: Coal Mining in Appalachia →

    Photographer, Les Stone, has been photographing the coal industry for the past 3 years in McDowell County. There are some really beautiful photos on the blog. It seems there is a new project about coal mining coming out of West Virginia on a daily basis ( and there has been for the past 50 years). Growing up in a coal-mining family I believe it is time that we start sharing stories from West Virginians who aren’t coal miners. Hollow will focus on the MANY other people—artists, students, entrepreneurs, teachers—and unique characteristics that make up the communities across Southern West Virginia.
