One of the most fun and innovative events I’ve hosted here in Burlington occurred at the Emergent Media Center in February 2012 – The Localvore Socialhack. We started with speakers Richard Ting, Global Chief Experience Officer at RGA, and Liz Gerber, founder of Design for America and professor at Northwestern University. The 72 attendees then divided into six groups and worked the rest of the day using design thinking to develop new ways of growing our Vermont Localvore economy.

It was a day full of creativity, design and innovation. Steve Mease took a slew of wonderful photos (https://picasaweb.google.com/101160914000741506452/SocialHackBTVSMB). And you can read a couple of blog posts from attendees. https://www.freshtrackscap.com/btv-smb-social-media-hack/ and http://goodstuffcommunications.com/btvsmb-february-social-hack-thoughts-and-mindmapped-notes
