According to Pop!Tech, “For the past year we have combed the planet searching for visionary change agents incubating breakthrough approaches to the world’s most pressing social, economic, and environmental challenges. We received more than a hundred amazing submissions from over thirty countries worldwide, and we’re proud to present the most outstanding sixteen – the 2008 Pop!Tech Social Innovation Fellows”

    Moi Saara!

    I’ll be in the USA for about a week, which covers the Pop!Tech conference, and may be back for other related meetings/events over the year, but nothing as drastic as before. So no need to worry about me living in a van again. ;o)

    Hei to Antti…
