BOULDER, CO - When's the last time you attended a conference and one of the keynote speakers was only 16 years old? This was but one of the thought-provoking subject matter experts we were treated to at the 14th annual LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability) Conference, held at the super green St. Julien Hotel here. ...more
We'll be bowling at QueenPin, hanging at The People's Party and taking fast and furious notes on the FTC Guidelines and more. But what happens when you get overwhelmed by the hustle of the city and the constant go-go-go at the conference? Where can you find a little bit of peace and quiet in the big city? ...more
It has been a week already. A long and painful week for my dear friend S -- she was supposed to fly to London last Monday to visit a mutual friend of ours - M - who - bravely and willfully - packed her belongings last fall and headed to England to finish her Masters in Art History.

A few months ago, I watched with interest as friends began tweeting about the Altitude Design Summit, the inaugural conference geared toward design bloggers, to be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, January 21 - 23.

And, it seemed to me, the group demonstrated commitment and compassion different from that of the tighter, earlier community.
I'm sort of amused to tell you that I write this from a campground in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. My belly is full of fried cheese curds -- hey, you gotta eat the local specialties -- and my hands are busy slapping mosquitoes. I've got a frosty Goose Island beer -- a yummy Chicago brew that snuck into the ice chest. A couple of kids are running here and there, riding bikes as though they're flying. Our tent is pitched on a flat patch of grass next to an outboard motor boat on a trailer and there's a weird rush hour of golf cars buzzing about.
