Friday, February 17, 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.
- Next week Ghanian-born, New York-based rapper, composer, and producer Blitz the Ambassador (PopTech 2011) will be performing and then speaking at the United Nations on the topic of hip hop and global diplomacy.
- Our official PopTech conference photographer Kris Krug was in Alberta, Canada this week working with the DeSmogBlog, making media to challenge the government of Alberta, which, it's been speculated, has made plans to initiate a large-scale wolf slaughter to hide the destruction wrought by the industrialization of the boreal forest ecosystem.
- Samasource, founded by 2010 Social Innovation Fellow Leila Janah has received the 2012 Secretary’s Innovation Award for the Empowerment of Women and Girls from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
