This week in PopTech: Movies, magazines, books and more

I love your work

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 art show “Social Media,” featuring selected works by Jonathan Harris (PopTech 2007) opened on Thursday at the Pace Gallery in Chelsea, New York. The show also includes work by David Byrne, Miranda July, Harrell Fletcher, Christopher Baker, Penelope Umbrico, and others.
  • Congratulations to Laura Stachel (2010 Social Innovation Fellow, PopTech 2011), founder of WE CARE Solar, which designs suitcase sized solar powered systems that power lighting and communication equipment to provide emergency care for mothers and infants. She was just named a 2011 Tech Awards Laureate
  • Finally, great news from re:char, founded by 2009 PopTech Fellow Jason Aramburu. Now anyone can purchase re:char's award winning Climate Kiln, which allows you to make your own biochar at home from leaves, yard trimmings, wood scraps or even cardboard/paper waste.
