Featuring New Work: Next City 2012 Disruption Index
Check out my most recent project with Next City (formerly Next American City)! The “2012 Disruption Index” is a collection of people, places and ideas that changed cities this year. The final product is an interactive PDF available to their Forefront members ($1.49/month to subscribe) and as individual entries on their blog. We are also raising money to have the index printed, readers will receive a full-color printed copy of the Index mailed to them for a $75 donation.
That sounds like a funny task. But our staff was after people pushing the boundaries of their discipline into promising new directions. Thus, you’ll find people like Jochen Zeitz, the chief sustainability officer overseeing PPR’s myriad brands, which include Puma and Gucci. You’ll find Evan Sharp, the cofounder of Pinterest, which just might be the next big paradigm in online shopping. And you’ll find David Holz, the CTO of Leap Motion, a company making gestural interfaces a reality for PCs.
