It's fun to be in Downtown Durham right now. Why?
Watch this building come down at 9 Madbury Road:
Now watch what's going up:
After many years of hard work to attract reinvestment in downtown properties, a new Durham is beginning to take shape.

We here at Idea Greenhouse love all entrepreneurs with all kinds of goals, profitmaking among them. But the businesses and startups that get us most excited are those that are "socially innovative" as a fundamental pillar of their thinking and doing.
So what is "social innovation?" Ask Founding Life Member Yusi Turell, and you'll get a concise, powerful explanation:
"Social innovation combines the passion and purpose of a social or environmental mission with the rigor and accountability of a market-based approach to enterprise design, financing, and operations."
Yusi is an enthusiastic champion for "social entrepreneurism" in the Seacoast and everywhere else. She's recently joined the University of New Hampshire to help create a new Center for Social Innovation and Community Finance, jointly housed in UNH's Whittemore School of Business and the Carsey Institute.
Yusi and the Center's founder, Professor Michael Swack, will be speaking next Tuesday 4/26 in Portsmouth. If you're interested in the emerging field of social entrepreneurialism, innovation, and "doing well by doing good," then get there next Tuesday.

If you're an observer of web startups and all things digipreneurial, you know and love the geek's version of "People Magazine," Fast Company.
Calling FastCo a magazine is like calling the Idea Greenhouse "just a cubefarm." FastCo is a multi-channel publishing empire, member site, and events company. It describes itself as "the world's leading progressive business media brand, with a unique editorial focus on innovation in technology, ethonomics (ethical economics), leadership, and design." Sounds boasty, but after subscribing for 4+ years, I can vouch for the claim.
Fast Company delivers must-know, eclectic, and "just plain cool" content for the tech/social/designerpreneur. If you join the Idea Greenhouse, you'll be guaranteed to find some copies of their gorgeous dead tree edition laying around.
