I’ve been watching Ted talks lately on my morning commute.

This one is definitely inspiring – Dave Eggers talking about Once Upon a School (which, unfortuntely, seems to be down at the moment). It’s the story of 826 Valencia, a publishing house / writing center / pirate supply store / tutoring community in San Francisco, and many others like it in other towns.

Engaging, inspiring, funny. Is there anything like this in Boston? What about a center like this, but with an emphasis on digital literacy and open hacking? (Answering my own question, check out 826 Boston and 826 National).
