Wow. I am incredibly honored, humbled, and excited to announce that I’ve been selected as a 2011 PopTech Social Innovation Fellow for Data Without Borders. Ever since I first heard about PopTech I have been hugely inspired by their mission of fostering world-changing ideas and bringing technology to bear on some of the world’s most pressing problems. I am extremely honored (and, frankly, almost embarrassed) to be given the opportunity to mingle among the incredible people there who are finding new and innovative ways of improving the world. I can’t thank PopTech enough for this and am going to spend the next month feeling like a kid trying to sleep the night before Christmas (Why can’t it be October _now_???)
The fellowship program is of course followed by the wonderful PopTech Conference, the focus of which this year is “A World Rebalancing”. If you or anyone you know is up near Camden, Maine October 19th-22nd and likes awesome things, come join us!.
