Here are some #podcasts I have produced for a great meetings & events industry show called IMEX America #IMEX13 - This is a great event if you are an event professional and it is FREE.  So if you can get a flight and hotel get down for it next month.  I will be manning a booth for my new #startup AVforPlanners.

Walking the Bay Bridge today.
 
Welcome Back, Bay Bridge! 

Did you miss the beautiful Bay Bridge this weekend? Well, it's back and better than ever thanks to a $6.4 billion dollar makeover.  Badly damaged during the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, this vital bridge connecting San Francisco to Oakland underwent a staggering 42,000 hours of construction (and a recent holiday weekend closure) to reach this point. What's more, pedestrian and bike lanes open at noon today: http://goo.gl/tPP429

Feel like celebrating? Here's a timelapse capturing years of construction in just a few minutes — http://goo.gl/tMIsXj

it was a long walk that dead ended.  Pretty new bridge. I felt sad for the old one.  Like that IKEA lamp commercial.
