VIEW FROM HONG KONG
Last October, Pacific New Media instructor David Ulrich spent a week in Hong Kong working with 170 school kids. Each one had a digital camera, courtesy of the Robert H.N. Ho Family Foundation, and they took 65,000 photos. What does the world look like through the eyes of youths? Ulrich answers that at his talk at 7 p.m. tonight in Krauss Hall, Yuki-yoshi Room, University of Hawai'i-Manoa. Free. Part of UH's Sakamaki Extraordinary Lectures series.
