Friday, October 07, 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.
- With yesterday's announcement of his new company, Sherpaa, Dr. Jay Parkinson (PopTech 2008) continues to re-imagine the patient/doctor experience by making a network of hand-picked health professionals chosen for quality, communication skills, personality, and mission accessible to those who are interested in a type of curated health care.
- PopTech 2011 speaker and highly respected thought leader in international relations Ann-Marie Slaughter wrote an op-ed this week in the New York Times on how the Occupy Wall Street protests are viewed overseas.
- Author of the Guardian’s weekly ”Bad Science” column and Bad Science: Quacks, Hacks, and Big Pharma Flacks, British physician Ben Goldacre (PopTech 2010) announced this week that he's taking to the stage for a run of live "nerd shows" called Uncaged Monkeys in December.
- Finally, congratulations to Ken Banks (2008 Social Innovation Fellow) and FrontlineSMS for winning the Curry Stone Prize for social design pioneers.
