You've likely read on Boing Boing about Ariel Waldman, creator of Spacehack and lead instigator of Science Hack Day, and Eri Gentry, co-founder of BioCurious. Congratulations are due this week to Ariel and Eri who were honored by the White House along with ten other "Champions of Change" dedicated to "increasing public engagement in science and science literacy!" Eri and Ariel are both colleagues of mine at Institute for the Future, and Ariel is also collaborating with Boing Boing on a fantastic event that we will announce in the coming weeks. Check out Ariel's post at the White House site, titled "Hacking Science and Space Exploration."
