Mayoral candidate Presumed next mayor Jim Kenney is making the rounds.

Kenney visited digital agency Bluecadet at its Fishtown HQ Thursday to talk about supporting tech and small business in Philly, said Conrad Benner (aka Streets Dept) who’s now doing communications work with Bluecadet.

During the mayoral primary, Kenney was the candidate who seemed most at ease speaking the language of the tech scene.

He also learned how to write his name in Hangeul, the Korean alphabet, using Bluecadet’s Hangeul Writing Interactive app, which Bluecadet built for the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s “Treasures from Korea” exhibit.
