This week in PopTech: Transitions, infographics and laughs

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.

  • PopTech Social Innovation Fellow turned Fellows' faculty, Ken Banks, is handing over the day-to-day operations of FrontlineSMS, an organization he founded six-and-a-half years ago. Banks, who will continue on in his role as Chair of the Board, writes more about the transition on the FrontlineSMS blog.
  • A number of familiar faces have been included in an infographic chronology from PublicInterestDesign. They include D-Rev, a nonprofit tech incubator founded by Paul Polak (PopTech 2007) and currently run by 2011 Social Innovation Fellow Krista Donaldson, and Project H Design, an organization working to mobilize product design ingenuity for social good founded by 2009 Social Innovation Fellow Emily Pilloton.
  • Premiering tonight on IFC is Reggie Watts' (PopTech 2006, 2010, 2011) new show, Comedy Bang! Bang!, which he co-hosts with Scott Aukerman. The show "cleverly riffs on the well-known format of the late night talk show, infusing celebrity appearances and comedy sketches with a tinge of the surreal."
