- Founder of Friendfactor, Brian Elliot (Social Innovation Fellow 2010) uses friendship to accelerate legal freedoms for LGBT people. A new Friendfactor feature, called Burning Questions, makes it easy to ask difficult questions when a friend or family member comes out.
- Gidon Eshel, (Science Fellow 2010) a statistician with a focus on food, is featured in the documentary Planeat, the story of three men’s search for a diet that's good for their health, good for the environment and good for the future of the planet.
- Collaboration alert: Photographers Chris Jordan (PopTech 2007, 2009) and Kris Krüg are documenting the realities of global consumption on the Pacific island of Midway.
- In more photo related news, our 2010 photo manager, Morrigan McCarthy, is spearheading a new project called The Geography of Youth. It's a worldwide bike journey and documentary photography project exploring what it means to be a 20-something today.
