Special Series: disRUPT II
Over these next few days, we'll be publishing five stories from the latest special section that ran in The Reader, an Omaha weekly alternative newspaper. This special section, titled disRUPT (left: cover, courtesy of The Reader, photo by Marlon Wright), is a partnership between The Reader, Scott Technology Center and us, Silicon Prairie News.
Here's the introduction to the series, also published in The Reader's November 4-10, 2010 issue:
disRUPT? Think Google, the iPod and Facebook. These are examples of disruptive business that changed the way we gather information, listen to and purchase music, and connect with friends. The publication is designed to give a glimpse into the lives of our region's top disrupters – leaders, entrepreneurs, technologists, creatives and innovators.
This partnership is unique. It brings together three seemingly disparate organziastions that are vested in our community – a traditional media company, and emerging technology incubator and a young blog and events producer – to share knowledge and resources to cover and support unique individuals across the ends of the experience spectrum.
