The HÜB@Northside An Inflatable Pean To Hyper-Connectedness

The warehouse space the size of Rhode Island that served as mothership for the Northside Festival was the perfect place to first experience TheHÜB.

A striking modern sculpture and interacting (as opposed to interactive) space where participants of Entrepreneurship@Northside could take a seat, drink free beverages, ask each other a million questions, check out trending topics, or be accosted by a blogger in search of quotes, TheHÜB calls attention to a need we didn’t know we had: The need to look up from social media and speak directly to the people around us more often (even if they appear to not be very into it at first).

When those people around us are obsessed with the same things we are it isn’t hard. Peter Raymond, the organizer of TheHÜB, says about Northside, “What we did was host impromptu gatherings and after speaking engagements. It was received very well and we have been invited to as far as Jordan and Greece to exhibit.”

    I installed Sonar but couldn’t find a way to make it useful. Did you try it / manage to do anything interesting with it?
