PopTech 2011 blog recap: Part 2
We heard dozens of stage talks, saw incredible demos and performances, captured lots of video and wrote even more on our blog during PopTech 2011 - in addition to a constant flow on Twitter and Tumblr! And with the conference streaming live, too, we realize it may have been difficult to keep up with everything. That's why we thought we'd offer a two-part recap with highlights from what we covered on the blog as the conference was taking place, drawing your attention to some of our favorite pieces on the blog:
- From the PopTech stage, Thomas Thwaites explained how he created a toaster from scratch, from raw materials.
- Salt Water Farm offered PopTech attendees a cooking class - and this sweet fennel marmalade recipe!
- 2011 Science Fellow Katherine Kuchenbecker explained how she's working to incorporate the sense of touch, known as haptics, into human-computer interfaces.
- We interivewed Egyptian activist Shima'a Helmy about her work leading that country's uprising in January of 2011.
- We watched a PopTech-made video about Connected, a collaboration between PopTech alum, Reuben Margolin, a kinetic sculptor and Gideon Obarzanek, a choreographer.
- Our photographers trekked around Camden, snapping photos of attendees, presenters, staff and volunteers and we put together a few slideshows, including this one.
- We spoke to Alison Klayman about her upcoming documentary, Never Sorry, which follows artist Ai Weiwei.
- Social Innovation Fellow Bryan Doerries performed The Theater of War.
