This week in PopTech: Pay-as-you-go solar and DIY toasters
Friday, April 13, 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.
- This week, Thomas Thwaites (PopTech 2011) of The Toaster Project was interviewed on The Rumpus. Thwaites talks about wondering where things come from, ruining his mother's microwave and taking another crack at building a toaster from scratch...on TV.
- Ze Frank (PopTech 2004, 2005) kicked off A Show with Ze Frank, a brand new Kickstarter-funded web series on Monday. He's already three episodes in. Start here for Episode 1: An Invocation for Beginnings.
- We're disheartened to read in Salon that U.S. filmmaker Laura Poitras (PopTech 2010) continues to be repeatedly detained at the border.
- Bloomberg profiles PopTech 2011 Social Innovation Fellow Paul Needham's pay-as-you-go solar venture, Simpa Networks.
