I was on a panel this morning at an Arts and Business Council workshop about "Blogs and Online Communities" and duly presented myself at the offices of Baker and McKenzie high up in one of the Prudential Plaza towers overlooking Millennium Park and South across Lake Michigan. See here in a quick snap with my cell phone's camera - click to enlarge - really not bad for a phone!
Most of the time was taken up with "Everything you wanted to know about Blogging and Online communities". This was something of a marathon but was clearly a huge success given the number of questions asked. Then we had one of those typically excellent US office sandwich lunches and continued with two case studies - Lookingglass Theatre Company, and my little segment at which I endeavored to explain the why and how etc. of this blog. There was a large turnout and we scrambled to get done by 1pm. Many good colleagues were there including Karen Fishman of Music of the Baroque, and Jim Ginsburg of Cedille Records - not to mention our wonderful Director of Marketing at COT Colleen Flanigan. I am now back in the office with a good many fund raising tasks to get accomplished this afternoon. Its hot and steamy outside so its good to be in here being air conditioned!
