The PopTech (http://poptech.org) 2009: America Reimagined conference is taking place in Camden, Maine from October 21-24, 2009 and streaming live at http://poptech.org/live. These are highlights from Thursday, October 22, 2009, including Erica Williamss passionate call to see her generation and their political interest as it really is, musician Zee Avis bright lyrics, artist Chris Jordans stunning photos of plastic inside albatross at Midway Atoll, Mayor John Fetterman on what his town isnt, and kinetic sculptor Reuben Margolin on waves, beads, and the movement of light. _____ America stands at a complex crossroads, economically, technologically, socially and geopolitically. Major forces are reshaping the idea of America, its governments contract with its citizens, its brand, and its role in the world. And there is not a single global challenge that can be addressed without it.
