It’s beautiful outside! Stop staring at the computer and go for a hike. When you’re done here, of course.
San Francisco is providing us with two summits designed to offer guidance and tips for those folks with the weight of an entire company on their shoulders. If this describes you, the Chief Strategy Officer Summit and CFO Innovation Summit are both 2-day events that will, at the very least, give you a damn good excuse to get out of the office.
Bloomingdale, IL is home to the Midwest Yoga Conference, which sounds to me like a festival of health and wellness built around the concepts of yoga.
The Seattle International Film Festival enters its 38th year and will provide several weeks of movies and events. This is a big deal up there, culturally speaking, and has gained recognition across the nation as a hub for interesting and innovative films.
And let’s not forget about the Cloud. The United Kingdom will relish it today, offering an educational event entitled the Cloud Circle Forum.
Innotech may sound to you like the name of a fake corporation in a James Bond or Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, but that just makes you ridiculous. The Innotech Conference in Dallas targets regional business & technology innovation, and certainly does not operate as a front for supervillains to create weapons large enough to destroy the world.
Even as we sleep, new technologies are invented and the human race pushes forward… and outward. Here to give you a quick update on the status of asteroid mining (check your archives of Hound-Ups if you need catching up) is a Gizmodo article showing this crazy new claw-thingy that grabs them and holds on for dear life.
I knew there was a reason I felt the need to consume 4-6 cups of coffee per day. It’s keeping me alive!
