This week in PopTech: Cartoons, music and digital culture
Friday, August 05, 2011 UTC|
There's always something brewing in the PopTech community. From the world-changing people, projects and ideas in our network, a handful of this week's highlights follows.
- Interdisciplinary artist Hasan Elahi (PopTech 2006), whose work examines issues of surveillance, simulated time, transport systems, borders and frontiers, was named the new director of Digital Cultures and Creativity at the University of Maryland.
- After seeing upcoming PopTech 2011 performers, The David Wax Museum, at the Newport Folk Festival this past weekend, Huffington Post entertainment editor Rob Kirkpatric has declared them the best band you might not know.
- We're young at heart, so we're loving Saul Griffith's (PopTech 2008) Howtoons, cartoons that teach kids how to build things, by combining instructions with storytelling. Summer just got a little more fun with this homemade underwater scope.
