“Democratizing Agribiotechnology” @ PKN8 Edmonton

Pecha Kucha Edmonton vol. 8 was a wonderful event with the spontaneous and unplanned themes of agriculture and city planning.

I had the special opportunity to speak about and share my ideas on open-sourcing biotechnology with an audience of about 500 people.

Appropriately held in the new CCIS (Centennial Centre for Interdisciplinary Sciences) Building on U of A campus as part of the kick-off to U of A Alumni Weekend, the event brought out an amazingly diverse crowd and was a wondrous networking opportunity. The event also had a big live twitter community, with #pkn8 trending in Canada.

There is a good review of PKN8 at this fellow Edmontonian’s blog and a little article in Metro Edmonton about the event as well. Pictures available here.
