Converged Communications on the Road: OneSpark at Noon
Converged communicators who haven’t done so yet might want to check out the sights, sounds, and unique experiences of OneSpark. It’s still running tonight (Friday) as well as Saturday and Sunday in a 20-block section of downtown Jacksonville. Speaking from experience, parking and transportation were no trouble for me, although the lunchtime crowds around the Food Village along Laura Street can be overwhelming. It’s a great way to catch up on some of the exciting new ideas and activities that are shaping our city. OneSpark also illustrates some of the ways that new media formats like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram can help new startups get attention and really take off. Pictures from Day 3 are included below.
Interesting patterns on all sorts of objects on the boundaries of Hemming Plaza – signs of the creativity to come inside OneSpark.

LiveStatue time. This creator (#20025) has very interesting ideas about film, makeup, and the art of being a live statue, or else might be auditioning to replace Abraham Lincoln on the penny.
Creators, humans, artists, makers, bootstrappers… you’ll find all of them here.

The inside of the old Barnett Tower, which is being redeveloped for residential use. It’s a massive renovation for one of the city’s historic landmarks.
Don’t look… up! A dizzying view straight up through the ceilings of the Barnett Building as workers continue the redesign.
The old elevators of Barnett Building: “This car up.” No, they don’t make elevators like they used to.

It’s #20134, the famous Bigwheel, as it motors (or non-motors) toward Chamblin’s Uptown. Assorted oddities are plentiful in this one-of-a-kind photo.
