I had an excellent day yesterday, and not just because my lunchtime presentation was pretty well received. For those of you with interest, here’s a SlideShare link to the slides.
Putting the Civil in Civilization
Fair warning: I asked Keynote to print all of the builds, and apparently I use a lot of builds in my slides, so you’ll be better off buzzing through them like an animated flip-book. Also it seems like the best point were made verbally, with just a photo in the background for context. I’ll link to the NextSpace YouTube channel when the video is posted.
The highlight of the day was visiting afterward with friends Michael Meyer and the Cosmic Crew. (http://designbycosmic.com/culture/) Spirited conversation with insightful people is sometimes too rare for those of us who work mainly alone. It was a delightful change to hang out in the Cosmic studio with the rollup door open, talk design philosophy and how good architecture fosters creativity, and then walk down the block for excellent beer and conversation.
I’m fortunate to have found such a vibrant community here in Santa Cruz, including the cooltech geniuses at NextSpace, old friends from school days, and new friends who intrinsically understand the Atlas approach to delivering engineering services.
