IT’S ALL IMPOSSIBLE: Lily Cole is taking her social giving Web site Impossible to the U.S. this month and the model will be talking it up in the next few weeks. First up is a speaking engagement at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society on Wednesday with Internet pioneer Sir Tim Berners-Lee. Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales and Nobel prize winning economist Muhammad Yunus are also part of her inner circle.
The model will discuss her giving networking site Thursday at RISD. On March 13 Cole can be found on the SXSW Neiman Marcus-backed panel “Make Some Noise,” and on March 19 she will chat with Chelsea Clinton at the Apple store in SoHo in New York. Cole will keep the conversation going about Impossible later in the month too.
