According to Scripps Institution of Oceanography Twitter “Twice a year, the sun aligns perfectly between the pilings of the (Ellen Browning) Scripps Memorial Pier for a spectacular sunset known as “Scrippshenge. The alignment occurs in August & May, though it’s not always visible due to the marine layer or clouds. Luckily, the sun peeked through briefly (friday), as seen in this photo by Erik Jepsen/UC San Diego, August 2019.”

“Scripps Oceanography is a leading center for global earth science research and education. Scripps has a long history of developing innovative technology to observe the planet, with scientists inventing and operating systems that monitor, study and predict environmental events. The institution is home to significant programs such as the Coastal Data Information Program (CDIP), an extensive network for monitoring waves and beaches along the U.S. coastlines, and HF-Radar Network, which delivers near-real time ocean surface current measurements through a network of shore-based radar systems. Scripps also operates a fleet of four oceanographic research vessels.” – http://www.sdnews.com

What is Innovate San Diego? It is a beautiful coffee table book with Augmented Reality videos embedded throughout, aimed at showcasing and celebrating the Innovation Ecosystem in our beautiful city and county. San Diego is known more for its beaches, parks and warm climate than for the amazing entrepreneurs and companies, like the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, that call it home. This project aims to change that – Innovate San Diego is all about finding the people and companies that are driving innovation and the world about them.

See San Diego as you have never seen it before!

“The Global Village mission is to proudly showcase success stories from every nation, their cities and its people to the world . . . an ever-growing tribe of media entrepreneurs, colleagues and friends, please join us as we complete the puzzle.”

Meet the Ledge Media Team – CEO Daphne Fletcher

CEO of Ledge Media Daphne Fletcher
CEO of Ledge Media Daphne Fletcher

Asked what motivates Daphne Fletcher today—it is her lifelong love of books —she passionately states, “We are awash in a sea of bad content in an era where content is king. I aim to change that.”

Daphne Fletcher, after successfully publishing thousands of books as the Vice President of HPN Books, a national publishing company, ventured off on her own and founded Ledge Media, a leading-edge multi-media content development and publishing company.

Daphne actually went backwards in the publishing industry, beginning in digital publishing as a web and app developer later transitioning into print media—which is unusual—but has offered her an outside-the-box perspective into the publishing industry. Ledge Media, the company she founded, specializes in blending leading edge mixed media (including the latest in augmented reality) with traditional books and magazines.

Her father, an IT engineer who worked in the era of mainframes, gave her one of the original
personal computers when she was a child, back before PCs and Windows and Apples were a thing and told her if she wanted it to do anything she’d have to program it. Having been a reading prodigy, inspired by her mother, a theater professor, who read to Daphne every day from birth, it didn’t take her long.

Asked what motivates her today—it is her lifelong love of books and stories—she passionately states, “We are awash in a sea of bad content in an era where content is king. I aim to change that.”
