The Wired for Change Remix Competition Announces Winner

On February 16, 2011, the Ford Foundation gathered leading social innovators, technologists, entrepreneurs and philanthropists for Wired for Change, an event that focused on how to bring digital democracy to all. But this was just the beginning.

In April, the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University and Digital Ethnography at Kansas State University launched "The Wired for Change Remix Competition" calling on student filmmakers to remix the videos from the Ford event. A panel of distinguished judges, including OK Go's Damian Kulash and Berkman Center fellows and staff, reviewed the remixes based on how best they communicated the value of digital culture.

On August 1, Patrick Quinton-Brown was announced the winner on His video, also available on YouTube, stood out among the others for, as the panel of judges put it, “the coherent advocacy message, the animated typography and original animation, and its humor.”
