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.
- Collaboration alert: Our friends at Hot Studio conducted a facilitated workshop for PopTech 2011 Social Innovation Fellow Megan White Mukuria's organization, ZanaAfrica. In their structured brainstorming session, Hot Studio and Zana developed a framework for designing the web components of Zana's services.
- Congratulations to PopTech Fellow Hayat Sindi who was named 1 of the 100 most influential Arab women of 2012 by Arabian Business.com! A leader in both science and social innovation, Sindi launched i2, the Institute for Imagination and Ingenuity at PopTech 2011. Sindi created the Institute to bridge the gap between education and opportunity in the Middle East.
- Additionally, both Sindi and lawyer, high court justice, and novelist Unity Dow (PopTech 2011) have been named to The Daily Beast's list of the 150 most fearless, trailblazing women in the world.
- Finally, congrats to 2011 Science Fellow Pardis Sabeti, named to the 2012 Forum of Young Global Leaders.
