Los Angeles Hashtags Itself, a limited series podcast, features representatives of various Angeleno private and public organizations leading the critical trend of using digital media for urban and social development. This diverse group serves as both a reminder and an analytical insight that digital media are neither just "useful" nor peculiar to the sharing and cultural economies, but fast becoming standard to the practice of material and social placemaking. If you like art, community benefits organizations, cultural journalism, real estate, transportation, and the technology industry generally, we hope you will find something worth hearing.

Angeleno orgs use digital media for urban development
Los Angeles, city of the surreal and hyper-real. City of Hollywood, made and broken dreams.
This podcast is a set of interviews with Angelenos who are at the forefront of using digital media for social and urban development. The first interview with Juan Devis of Artbound was delightfully enlightening. Understanding how Artbound has navigated their decision making process while allowing readers/viewers to re-discover the city was fascinating.
Can't wait for episode two - The next interview will focus on LA2050 and the Goldhirsh Foundation.
I love LA and this podcast graces us with a deeper understanding of the new digital landscape in placemaking!
