Pie Power June 22, 2009

Making a difference, one slice at a time. That seems to be the idea behind Pie Lab, a new cafe in Greensboro, Alabama, that I discovered via Deep Fried Kudzu. Pie Lab was created by designers with a higher purpose in mind: to bring the community together and encourage its residents to make connections. It’s social networking the old-fashioned way, and it seems be yielding some positive results already, according to this article in Fast Company. I can’t tell you how much I love this concept, and I definitely have to visit this place and enjoy a slice of pie.

While you’re perusing that article, follow the links to learn more about Project M, the program that birthed Pie Lab. The idea is to bring creative people together to brainstorm–and then execute–solutions to pressing problems. And they’re coming from all over to the program’s base in rural Alabama. Just a little more proof that this state can be a magnet for creative people who want to accomplish something.
