We’re psyched for SMWNY here at Zeitgeist, even if the term “social media” is beginning to make everyone break out in hives…   For one thing, I’ll be helping to facilitate a sort of gigantic ideation session sponsored by my friends at Luminary Labs on Health | Tech | Food, billed as an “Open Innovation Event to Solve for the Health of New Yorkers” — it’s not too late to RSVP! And speaking of “not too late,” here are more picks with space still available as of now (light on marketing /how-to’s, heavy on citizenship, social good, art, and weird and/or cool):
