I feature an interesting website, blog, Twitter feed, Facebook page or other online destination related to Waterloo Region on CKWR with Randolph J. Johnston called #WRawesome Online, Mondays at about 12:30.
I hope by doing so that I’ll help people find places online that help them to connect to their community–online and in the real world. By doing so, I hope to help people find online places that they might not find otherwise and make our community a better place to live.
For folks looking for communications advice, you can get tips from each selection featured. I’ll highlight at least one example in my weekly post.
WRawesome Online: Waterloo Region – A Symphony of Design
This video from Canada’s Technology Triangle may be a couple years old but I’m featuring it because I suspect only a small proportion of Waterloo Region residents have viewed it.
Everyone living in Waterloo Region should set aside 25 minutes to watch this video. You’ll be able to see the big picture of all the exciting developments that are happening in our region.
You’ll see things that you see everyday but in a new way and with context that we often lack when going about living our lives. This video shows not only what is happening now but the future of Waterloo Region.
While the subject of the video is about design of building and cities, the true stars are the people of Waterloo Region.
We have many great reasons to be proud and optimistic. Let’s celebrate them!
I love how this video uses the symphony as an analogy for a creative community and emphasizes it with the talented musicians of the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony.
This video shows how powerful of a medium that it is to tell stories in a way that text even supplemented with photos could ever do. It also shows how an expertly crafted video can have a long shelf life. The content is still, for the most part, valid and compelling years later.
