This week in PopTech: Routing devices, emerging explorers and being green
Friday, May 18, 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.
- Jonathan Harris (PopTech 2007) was featured in this Big Think video where he unpacks how social media is used as “routing devices for human attention… providing our species with a common nervous system.”
- Earlier this week Amy Cuddy (PopTech 2011) talked about her testosterone-manipulating power poses on Wired.com.
- A sneak peak of a new RadioLab short called Colors includes the one and only Reggie Watts (PopTech 2010, PopTech 2011) singing a trippy version of Kermit the Frog's "Bein' Green."
- Finally, congratulations to the 2012 class of National Geographic Emerging Explorers. Familiar faces include PeaceTXT collaborator, Patrick Meier (PopTech 2010), Social Innovation Fellow and Data Kind founder Jake Porway (PopTech 2011) and 2011 Science Fellow Iain Couzin.
