Every year in elementary school (in Kansas) I would look forward to the day that Randy Nadler came to visit. We’d all pile into the gym for a special cultural presentation (aka awesome slide show) about somewhere in the world he had traveled. The fact that I can still remember his name to this day definitely shows that his love of culture and travel rubbed off on me.
While sites like Flickr are an incredible tool (and I love how friends and strangers alike can leave comments about your pictures), I must admit, I also miss the days of the good ‘ole fashioned slide-show. While I have yet to experience it myself, I love the idea behind Slideluck Potshow, a non-profit where everyone who comes is encouraged to participate, bringing food, drink, and up to 5 minutes of their slides to share. Their events happen all over the world, and they’re always looking for new venues and “artists” to show their work (themes vary too). It’s a brilliant idea if I do say so myself!
