Sptnk.org : The Observatory for the Study of Contemporary Culture.
Sputnik is an NY organization that seeks to document, promote, and foster discussion around current trends in culture (I think Sptnk is more a "loose confederation" than an organization, but I can't seem to find much more about them. Here's one of the founder's tongue-in-cheek Linked In page). They just launched a new website which ties together sets of interviews from thinkers and doers in lots of fields. They are organized nicely into "paths"
, and transmissions (presentations). Jonathan Harris
(he blogs at number27.org
) did the design of the site, which is top notch. The production values are not up to ted.com
levels, but the weaving of stories and conversations that is emerging may prove useful. Happy culture hunting!
