The +WWE has just restored my UBG video to YouTube saying that all three occurrences since 2012 were inadvertent. While I appreciate their cooperation once they responded, I hope they will do as they say and take measures to ensure this doesn't happen again.

My 177 pounds of caged fury and I are standing down. Thanks to legions of supporters who've been reaching out to offer support. Much appreciated.

I've only just come across it and I'm absolutely amazed at how the airline didn't pay out for the damage they caused to your guitar!
I play acoustic guitar every now and then (a Yamaha Classical) and I'd love to know the chords if possible. Cheers!

It's confirmed. I'll be delivering a Ted Talk in Hoboken NJ on June 28. I'm told it will sell out quickly so if you can't attend it'll be online to see at a later date. I'll let everyone know to check it out.....but only if I can tame this damn hair of mine!

Once again the +WWE  has made a copyright infringement claim against United Breaks Guitars so YouTube has temporarily taken my video off line. I assume, like the previous two or three times they did this, it will come as a surprise and they will expedite a fix. This has to stop though or I'm gonna buy some folding chairs, start weightlifting and "yell-talking" (a.k.a. "Yalking").

Wow, that's absolutely ridiculous. Do you know what material from the video their bot thinks is stolen?

"Tourism is completely about telling a story. It's not about what you sell or your destination... There are oceanfront places all over the world but what makes New Brunswick extra special is the story and how you convey that so people want to see themselves in you."

I shared my presentation with an amazing group from the New Brunswick coastal tourism industry in Bouctouche yesterday. It was refreshing to talk about connection with others and the power of story with people who believe it and are motivated to do it.
