I've believed for a long time that there has to be a better way for musicians and flight crews to get along when it comes to the question of bringing your instrument on the airplane. 

Musician friends, please take a few minutes to fill out this survey about your experience performing and traveling with your instrument. There are fewer than 25 questions, and the data from the anonymous responses will be used to develop new options to make your life easier: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1630817/Instrument-Travel
Instrument Travel. Created using SurveyGizmo, online survey software.

Delighted to see San Francisco Opera included in VentureBeat today - how cool.
 
Love opera? Do you think that only old folks love opera and not the cool, need I say hip (not hipsters), tech peeps? Think again!
Silicon Valley and SF tech love opera too! In fact, many of my best friends love opera and are also in tech.
+Heather Meeker +Brian Solis +Zak Kirchner +Evy Wilkins +james lee +James Taylor +Maura Lafferty +Dale Larson - just to name a few
#opera   #arts   #siliconvalley  
These seven tech entrepreneurs want to breathe life into a struggling institution, the San Francisco Opera.

Annoyed that I got sucked in by a Twitter scam, so have something hopeful instead.

I'm excited about the third of +Mondavi Center for Performing Arts' Google+ hangouts on Thursday, for which +Paul Dresher has joined the platform. He'll be demonstrating his invented instruments, the Quadrachord and the marimba lumina, up close and personal! Can't wait! #music   #inventions   #musictech   #newmusic   #Composer  
 
From his collaborations with Rinde Eckert and Stephen Schick to his delightful Sound Stage performance, +Paul Dresher has brought a garden of wild musical delights to the Mondavi Center. The San Francisco Classical Voice describes Paul Dresher’s Double Duo as “exciting, surprising, and refreshing—a chance to hear contemporary classical music at its best.” 

Join the Dresher/Davel Invented Instrument Duo online March 28 for an in-depth look at their work, and the Quadrachord and Marimba Lumina that will be featured in their April 6-7 program on Mondavi Center's "New Horizons" series, http://awe.sm/cDrw7. Come with your questions ready!

Mike Monteiro @muledesign is always inspiring whenever he gets in front of a group: http://www.webstock.org.nz/talks/how-designers-destroyed-the-world/
You are directly responsible for what you put into the world. Yet every day designers all over the world work on projects without giving any thought or consideration to the impact that work has on the world around them. This needs to change. About Webstock · Blog · Contact us.
