This week in PopTech: Modern medicine, good food and reluctant innovators
Friday, May 11, 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.
- The Good Food Revolution by Growing Power's Will Allen (PopTech 2009) came out yesterday. He recently spoke with American Public Media's The Splendid Table about his book and his urban farm Growing Power, located in Milwaukee, WI.
- Jonathan Harris (PopTech 2007) recently created a short series of vignettes called Modern Medicine in the new online journal, The Farmer & Farmer Review. The series examines the relationship between medicine and software and their combined ability to help and to harm.
- Just in time for Mother's Day, Rapper Abdominal (PopTech 2008) has released a new track, "Courage," which features none other than...his mom!
- This week, Ken Banks, founder of Kiwanja as well as PopTech faculty and 2008 Social Innovation Fellow, posed a request on his blog seeking ideas and nominations for "reluctant innovators" or more specifically, "people who unexpectedly come up with an innovative solution to a problem they’ve experienced or witnessed" for his new book. If you know someone who fits the bill, let him know.
