Baltimore, the ‘edtech capital’ of the U.S.? [Links]

"Baltimore, as it so happens, is an edtech hotspot. In fact, Citelighter’s CEO Saad Alam thinks the city has the capacity to become the 'Edtech capital of the United States.'"

Finding an EdTech Fortune in Baltimore [Forbes.com]: “Baltimore, as it so happens, is an edtech hotspot. In fact, Citelighter’s CEO Saad Alam thinks the city has the capacity to become the ‘Edtech capital of the United States.'”

A Field Trip to FabLab Baltimore [Bmoreart]: “Tucked against cinderblock walls are all the machines: a vinyl cutter, two laser cutters, four 3-D printers, and a CNC router with a full 4’ x 8’ cutting bed. In the center of the room is a cluster of worktables, scattered with copies of MAKE magazine and scraps of laser-cut acrylic.”

Q&A with Evan Siple of The City That Breeds [SouthBmore.com]: “There are some strange folks out there in Baltimore and the number one way to have to interact with them is vending at a farmer’s market or a festival booth.”
