This week in PopTech: Cartoons, music and digital culture

Howtoons Summer

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. 
  • 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
