Got back from the Wizard Academy Reunion just in time to make it to Joy & Isaac's wedding on Sunday. Had a great time in Austin!! We met Michele Miller at the Wizard Reunion & had the opportunity to chat with her a bit. Michele's blog WonderBranding was named as one of the best blogs by Forbes.com this year. check it out: http://www.michelemiller.blogs.com/marketing_to_women/
how cool is it that i got to meet Malcolm Gladwell in Atlanta & then Michele Miller the next weekend in Austin... and get my picture taken w/both of them! oh, and the top pic here is our pic with the wizard himself, Roy Williams. wow... i'm a nerd sometimes.

okay- so I went to the Catalyst conference in Atlanta- got back on Saturday afternoon. it was a great experience. just when you think that all christian related events and churchy people suck- you learn otherwise. let me just say that the very first sounds I heard coming from inside the arena when I walked through the door was: “ohoh oh o oh, ohoh oh o oh, the right stuff!” Yes, that’s right, a New Kids on the Block video. It was at that moment that I knew I was going to have a fabulous time.
I’ll write more about my Catalyst experience later when I have more time…
…checkout my picture with Malcolm Gladwell, author of the Tipping Point. Which btw, I was a big fan of Gladwell BEFORE the conference… if you haven’t read either of his books, you might check them out. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/search-handle-url/ref=pd_kk_sr_2/102-6254586-7647309?index=stripbooks&field-keywords=malcolm%20gladwell
