  • An unmistakably unremarkable day. And quiet too, aside from light jazz in the diner wafting in the breeze and mingling with the whirrs and hums of robotic passersby industriously walking pets and hefting tangibles. On the sidewalk, every robot carefully rolled or side-stepped the Median’s Café Digiboard propped up by the entrance, highlighting the dinner delicacies for August 15, 2194: local lab-grown filet mignon topped with light BlueButter sauce, steamed ginger-citrus squash-carrots and served with a warm roll of asparagus-wheat sweetbread.
  • I just got back from BlogHer ’11 in San Diego. What a great conference! With over 3,600 attendees, dozens of sponsors, and 2.5 days of speakers, parties and panels, it was a whirlwind of interesting insights, new connections and brand encounters. Needless to say, I came home Sunday afternoon and went to bed immediately for a three hour nap. But, I got the most out of the conference by having a strategy and goals for the conference. I’d like to share a few with you, since they may be helpful for any upcoming conferences you may be attending.
