This week in PopTech: Pay-as-you-go solar and DIY toasters

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. 
  • Bloomberg profiles PopTech 2011 Social Innovation Fellow Paul Needham's pay-as-you-go solar venture, Simpa Networks.
