Postopolis! was a five-day event of near-continuous conversation about architecture, urbanism, landscape, and design. Four bloggers, from four different cities, hosted a series of live discussions, interviews, slideshows, panels, talks, and other presentations, fusing the informal energy and interdisciplinary approach of the architectural blogosphere with the immediacy of face to face interaction.

Then, as always, I like to dream about the future, so I was just checking out Master programs in Landscape Architecture around the world, (I think I have been doing this since even before I started university :p) and here are some of the options...
University of Guelph (I actually applied to the BLA there when I was at high school, but they told me I needed one year of university studies in Colombia since we only study 11 years at uni... but I have always really like this uni for some reason)
University of British Columbia (I love Vancouver, and it looks like an interesting program being under the School of Architecture + LA)
Lincoln University (Just because I want to go to NZ someday :P plus I find it really interesting how they always have Maori studies over there)
Wageningen University (Netherlands - Just studying in Europe is great reason enough... and it seems to be a very good program)
Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (I really like the program description, and after working in IKEA my interest in this otherwise cold, up in the north, expensive country grew)
Anhalt University of Applied Sciences (Germany - but I dont need to learn German before, though I would like to!)
UK & USA -> I guess I am still avoiding the USA as a place to study or live, and for some reason I also lost my interest in UK recently... no personal feelings! I may still consider UC-Berkeley just because there is lots of hippies around. :)

It's a shame I wont be able to go the Ecocity Summit (since it would have been an amazing opportunity to get lots of incredible information, meet wonderful people and make great connections) but I will try and take the most out of the information they've been publishing in their ecocity media blog, and do some networking through the internet I guess.
Sometimes I feel so apart from my career, but whenever I find a great project I just feel so fascinated by the idea of what I myself could do to create a better living environment more in harmony with nature, animals and ourselves. So lets hope this blog will help me stay in touch with the landscaper part of me.
It all starts within us~
