I tried the feature that automatically turns on Drivemode when it detects I'm driving. I could not make the app load the "clock" screen when it launched automatically. I would see the "swipe right" option to load the menu of options, but the clock would not load. When I disabled the automatic launch mode this morning and launched the app manually, it was fine.

Also, for what it's worth, having app notifications, thank yous and tutorials pop up while I'm driving is a little counter to the point of the app.

From Ken's bio on the Newsonomics website: Ken Doctor’s work centers on the transformation of consumer media in the digital age, from The New York Times to Netflix and from Comcast to Conde Nast. He draws connections among the news, information and entertainment we all get and the fast-changing business of media.

Sherry is director, digital & audience development at Business Insurance, a Crain Communications publication, where she has worked since October 2014. Her career has been varied and eclectic, taking her from print to combined print/digital, to exclusively digital. I came to know Sherry when she was the editor of Journalists.org, the website for the Online News Association.

Unfortunately I have a work conflict that cannot be moved. I wish I could be here, it seems like Ms. Skalko has a lot to teach!

Tom's LinkedIn profile notes that his job as senior director at PBS is basically "blending business and content skills to keep the Muppets fed." In fact, he's key to the team that coordinates digital tools and content with PBS member stations. His background includes print journalism and a variety of roles in digital news at Tribune Company. We'll talk with him about changes in the business since he started and what he sees going forward.

Either way is fine. It's not disruptive. I'm sorry you can't be there for all of it, but I realize from the schedule people are posting that there's no way to schedule around everyone.

Lovely location. Watched a movie at the theater and the experience was terrific.

Newly remodeled, the place looks great. Food is on point, but the staff seemed bewildered and overwhelmed by the lunchtime rush.

Really enjoyed the service and the food. We had a comfortable spot in the restaurant for our group of nine and the wait staff was efficient and helpful without being overbearing. Only ding was on the location of the bar, which made it hard to gather around before dinner without blocking the front door.

Serviceable food and decent service. Not worth raving about, but definitely a step up from typical fast food.

I've found the staff to be friendly and efficient, the men's locker room is always clean and the equipment is generally in good shape. I haven't had any bad experiences with the clientele, either, and, in fact, I've had a few positive experiences with some of them.

I've always had good meals and good service here. Seems a tad robotic, as opposed to warm and welcoming, but otherwise just fine.
