The Huffington Post has had more than 1,000 responses to their HuffPost Game Changers awards to honor and celebrate 100 people who are using new media to reshape their fields and change the world. Naturally, that set to me to thinking about Richmond and who was doing something similar -- specifically in terms of shifting the way people in the region think about the relationship between new technology, innovation, business and community.
So let me plagiarize THP for a moment:
We want your suggestions about the innovators, visionaries, and leaders who are harnessing the power of new media to change the game -- to change the way we look at the world and live in it.
I'll shift the field a bit with some different categories than THP.
Buttermilk & Molasses wants to know who the game changers in the Richmond region are in the following categories:
- News and Media
- Regional Cooperation and Vision
- Environmental/Green Movement
- Nonprofit/Community Service
- Arts and Culture
- Advertising and Marketing
Using the comments section, tell us WHO you are nominating for WHICH category and WHY you think they're a game changer. Who is doing something that is shifting the way we think and act in the Richmond region?
