Demonstrating the power of Basecampthe SMARTACUS Creative Group is engaging the community in a new, highly efficient form of civic publishing. We're capitalizing on the efficiency of interactive tools to have content-creating conversations with community leaders, entrepreneurs, and experts.

Our Content Engine enables us to capture keystrokes in interviews. That allows for a major time savings, enabling us to simply maneuver text while preserving our sources' words exactly as they wish to be quoted. 

We seek conversations with

  • leaders in Upstate New York's creative economy who have legacies they'd like to leave and visions they wish to share; 

  • young entrepreneurs who are innovating sustainable solutions that just may enable our planet needs to survive;

  • future-oriented experts who can help us envision Saratoga Springs and our larger world in 2056.
