Later, I wrote MANY posts on recent Podcasts I was listening to. I would post the printed description and roll on. I began to group them together for those interested to find the programs and posts they were most interested in. That fell off as I needed space on my hard drive and traveled often for work. I have since been listening to a backlog of NPR Music emails, and clearing off podcasts without posting them. I will try to do better on this score.

The next phase of posts came from Notes I had written on Facebook. I thought some of those ideas might be of interest for people beyond my friends on Facebook, making new connections. There were not many and most of my friends seem to not be using notes any more. Or, Facebook’s new timeline process just broken my link to reading such posts. I swear, every time they make changes, I loose friends. You almost need a PhD to use Facebook now. Oh well.

I started this blog back in August of 2010 to start to put thoughts to paper. I’m still working on that, and hoping to soon be able to give a daily 140 word or less update. Some will be longer, and that’s okay, sometimes there are more interesting things that need to be said. Other times, it is just a quick journal entry of the day.
So, a couple of quick bits today about the blog. My first posts were of my multiple drafts for a resume. Not terribly interesting, but at least they are consolidated. The hope was to give a quit write up about what it was like to work at the places on my resume, but so far, I have only written about Southern Temp.

At this year’s Grassroots Conference, one of the most stimulating presentations heard by your President and President-Elect was one made, not by an architect, but by an expert in computer technology, Arthur Esch. The theme, as will be the theme of his lecture at the Design Conference, was “Preparing for the Year 2000.” In it, he prepared us all for the potential hazards of the Y2K bug, both to ourselves and to our clients, with dramatic visuals and an interactive style that kept us all on the (l)edges of our seats and often convulsed in laughter.
Mr. Esch built the first digital television network, holds key U.S. patents for building multimedia networks, and is the Chief Technology Officer of the American Institute of Architects, strategizing the Institute’s networks of the future.
He begins our conference in a session you will not forget and is on point for our theme “On the Ledge” as we approach the end/beginning of the millennium.

Showplace ’99 is this year’s products show that will be held in the Pontchartrain Center in Kenner, Louisiana, only a short drive from Conference Headquarters, the Airport Hilton, in beautiful Kenner. This year’s show promises to be one of the best, since it will be near New Orleans, one of the exhibitors’ largest markets. There will be 148 booths of building materials, building trades and technology, and technology for design professionals.
The exhibition begins after design presentations, also at the Pontchartrain Center, by two of America’s leading designers, Sam Mockbee, FAIA, and Steven Ehrlich, FAIA, following a continental breakfast.
There will also be a Products Exhibition Luncheon and booths for ASID, for the new website for AIA NO, and a promotion of the upcoming “CANstruction ’99″ to be held in November.
The Products Exhibition is for everyone, and students and professionals, both registered and unregistered, should come and see all that you can see.
