Had a very nice lunch today with Tina Roth Eisenberg of Swissmiss, Brain Pickings‘ Maria Popova and Sharon Lee, president of Culture-Brain. Three smart women doing very interesting work. We ate at the studio run by Tina. It’s a shared workspace on the water in Dumbo. (You can read more about it here). Conversation ranged from Malcolm Gladwell’s ego and the role a second child plays in a family to the delicious local Himalayan hot sauce and Milton Glaser on the power of really knowing what you’re capable of doing.
Back at the hotel I’m now set up to work. Kind of. While I love the view from my hotel window the cord situation is driving me crazy (see below). I came across the Applecore cable tamers (above) on Tina’s blog. Perfect for the cable-heavy world I seem to exist in.
For now ICFF beckons. More on that tomorrow.
