Researched and written by the Digital Futures students at OCAD University

The Innovator's Guide is a creative nerd's handbook to Toronto and New York, researched and written by the Digital Futures students at OCAD University. It’s a kind of Lonely Planet travel guide or a user’s manual for these cities, but for people who like to create and make and experiment with new media. It is meant for hackers, makers, researchers, artists, educators, and startup-ers. For each city, the book will contain around 10-15 longer feature articles and 30-40 shorter profiles of maker spaces, studios, coops, resource centres, and other cool things to do that people like us should know about.

With an expected release in May 2014, the Guide will be a cool pocket-sized book (6" x 9"), perfect bound with a colour cover, a black and white interior, and a page count of between 70 and 100 pages.

To pre-order a copy and support the development process, check out the Indiegogo campaign.
