can’t you just email it?

Do you have a lot of free time? Chances are, if you're like most people, the answer is a resounding "NO."Event professionals are busy. Clients are busy. Our children are busy. Get the picture? I've long thought that email was a great way to handle the majority of client communication.

Paper Arts: paper cuttings by Eiko Ojala

I don't know whether to feel better or worse:I recently stumbled on the work of Eiko Ojala, and Estonian artist whose papercuts are otherworldly. I've been toying with the idea of doing a series about all the cool things people are doing with paper and this seemed like a perfect way to start us off. That is, until I learned no trees were harmed in the making of this work.Ojala's papercuts are actually digital illustrations! His work...

This price (and some fine features) represent a giant leap forward in accessibility of in-home 3D printing. And, while there's some doubt as to whether 3D printing will truly become ubiquitous, I do think it is an important part of the...

I'm sure my choices in moving picture entertainment play a role, too.In this one, someone had died. A young girl.I discovered that she had left me a series of clues - could she be any more cliché?

MUSIC MONDAYS: race, stereotypes and classical music

Music Mondays: because life’s better with a soundtrack.There's been quite a discussion brewing regarding audience-building in classical music and I'm fascinated by it. It all started with this post by Greg Sandow. Now, I don't know Greg or his work, but it should be noted that this is actually his interpretation of Bo Young Lee's presentation. She's a diversity consultant (Do we really still need these? Wish we were past it!) and, for her sake, I hope...
