This week in PopTech: Designing for health, business and social good
Friday, April 27, 2012 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.
- PopTech 2011 Social Innovation Fellow and MASS Design Group’s Michael Murphy spoke to a group at Van Alen Books for the launch of Empowering Architecture, a publication showcasing the Butaro Hospital in Rwanda. Murphy discussed his group’s holistic approach to architecture and the potential for architectural practice to play an integral role in building spaces that heal and strengthen communities.
- Longtime friend of PopTech, Nancy Duarte, the CEO of Duarte Design, has advanced the art and literature of presentations, emerging with her agency as one of the most sought-after authorities in presentation design. Duarte has just released Resonate for iPad, a cinematic, interactive and media-rich business book.
- You'll definitely want to carve out a chunk of time to read a piece in the The New York Times by Siddhartha Mukherjee (PopTech 2010) entitled Post-Prozac Nation: The Science and History of Treating Depression.
- Finally, yesterday, Social Innovation Fellow Jake Porway announced that his organization, Data Without Borders, will now officially be known as DataKind.
