pod4 Want to Be a Resident Goodnik?
My old friend and cohort Nate Heasley sent me this announcement for a cool summer opportunity available through his non-profit org, Goodnik:

NY’s School of Visual Arts has a new “maker” MFA program starting in the fall called Products of Design. Before the program officially starts, they’ve decided to open their space this summer to create a coworking community of innovative designers. As part of that program, and in partnership with, they are taking on one designer to be named the Resident Goodnik – someone who is designing a product that will have a tangibly positive impact on the world. The Residency spot includes a designer-friendly work desk in a community of makers, and it also comes with access to their new Visible Futures Lab, which has all kinds of cool maker toys like a laser cutter, 3D printer, woodshop, electronics lab. Applications are now being accepted at
