Pittsburgh is offering great learning programs across the city this summer as part of the national City of Learning program. If you live in PGH, get your kids to these amazing events!
Young people are always learning, but their academic gains can slide when school is out for the summer. For the second year, The Sprout Fund is leading Pittsburgh City of Learning, a citywide campaign to connect more than 50 organizations offering summer learning opportunities for an expected 5,000 youth. Through Pittsburgh City of Learning the ent...

Maybe they can build flood walls out of those stupid textbooks they've butchered.

It is not enough to know which social networks people use if we are going to effectively connect with key audiences. We have to know HOW they use them and WHO they talk with on each network.
It is long past time that we stop talking about which social networks to use for this campaign or that. When it comes to targeting audiences, what matters more than which networks people use is how th

The #FEC is "worse than dysfunctional" says its Chairperson #AnnRavel. She also says the FEC is "breathtakingly" crucial for improving and maintaining public trust in government. 

Can #socialmedia save the day & restore trust in govt in the wake of FEC gridlock?

If used properly by polticians and government officials, it can. But will they step up? 
The long presidential campaign season is upon us and the media is filling up with stories about how social media is changing politics. And perhaps because bad news always seems to sell better, many of

Sprout Fund, a local nonprofit that supports innovative ideas and grassroots community projects, wants cities and regions across the country to be able to learn from these and other local ideas.
Maybe you’ve already heard of the Makeshop at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, where this week, children were building a beehive. Perhaps you know about Carnegie Mellon University’s Create Lab, which empowers students to think of technology as a tool that can be used for social change. Or possibly you’ve followed the Elizabeth Forward School District as it enhanced its classes with innovations ranging from game design theory to an interactive...

Socialism doesn't mean taking wealth from those who work hard and giving it to those who don't. You're thinking of Capitalism.
While I'm not personally a socialist, I do have a social conscience and certainly agree that capitalism left to it's own accord will drain wealth from working folks and give it to the aristocratic class. It robs the poorest 90% of society to fund the lavish lifestyles of the rich and famous as it spits on the grave of The American Dream. We need a kinder, gentler economic reality where those who work hard are able to keep more of the wealth they create.

I interviewed 2 Titans of Digital Democracy (Steven Clift​ & Daniel Bennett​) to get their take on the impact of social media on democracy. These two titans are responsible for getting Congress running on email and providing voters with web-based election news and issue forums. 

Now, more than twenty years after they built the foundation of digital democracy, they wax on social media and the future of digital democracy.

On Day One of their Candidacies, the first four 2016 presidential hopefuls took to Twitter in different ways to differennt effects. Hillary Clinton dominated in sheer numbers. Rand Paul got top marks for engaing his supporters. Where will they go from here and what will the other candidates do when they join the race?
