Josh Marshall, editor and publisher of Talking Points Memo (3/27/14), is "excited to announce that we've launched a very cool new section" to the website called Idea Lab: Impact. Marshall describes its focus:
How is science and applied technology affecting real human lives? How is it impacting people and communities living on the margins of global wealth and on the margins of the technological transformations of the 21st century–whether that's in Sub-Saharan Africa or Appalachia or in congested great cities of the world. Basically, how is and how can science and technology change the lives of people in their everyday lives–not only with their gadgets and not only for people who command great wealth, but real world impacts for everyone.
