like the united airlines safety film
how do you say it,mark and I performed product analysis on an airline catalog -
everything that could have gone wrong did?
or maybe it was just staying up til 6 am with abbe
both slappunch drunk and happy
wrestling with the dubious task of faith
ahhh, internet startup
and abbe, of course, is the best qualified to speak to our defaults
it can seem like pending doom
except that we have abbe on our side
and these things evolve
so I wakeup and our flight is been cancelledit's bonding time
thank you united airlines
we're going to crested butte
the site of the digital storytelling festival
have to fly a puddle jumper and take a van to get there
it's not ski season so the lifts are still rusty
having gotten two hours of sleep
and spoon didn't sleep much either
and he's a little misgiven about the whole thing
and so we laugh
and we laugh and we laugh
a special in-flight composite of so many mail order life betterment providers
therein's some real gems:
original one person one step christmas tree stand
turbo-boosted tie rack
goddess of the sun barbie
"all the tradition and magic without the mess"
the voice of authority was reserved for a mel gibson lookalike whity guy.
next in the heirarchy of screentime was the blonde woman
during his time onscreen, he is staring at the exit window
and some older white guy picks up the safety card and explains it to the black man.
thank you united airlines.
like they served pizza, and couldn't tell me whether there was meat in it.
we arrived, our fatigue growingso this conference is sponsored by apple
our hotel is old, it smells like wood
there's a hot tub, but it closes at 9.
registration takes place at a beer hall
with micro-beer tasting and bar food
baked brie swimming in pesto oil
mark and I ate mexican.
steak even, it gave me a lot of energy.
he's in a sort of funk, not so motivated
there were a lot of last minute drop outs
I'll miss those folks,
I don't really know them,
but it seems to mean I get more stage time.
which is cool,
better than some companies I guess
but sponsorship means they have to front stuff like
panels on "digital brand building"
what does that have to do with storytelling?
and they give us this "masters of media" booklets and baglets and logos
and the last sentence of the document "Strategies for Building Digital Brands" is
popular opinion aside, the apple macintosh will not only survive but flourish in the telemedia age.whose brand are they building?
I'm trying to keep an open mind,
but at that point I imagine walking on the mountain
some day, they will wonder at us for travelling to the semi-wilds to sit in darkened rooms with computer screens and brand builders.
me, I'm just grateful to gunnison high,
loaned these macs I am typing today with my mountain chilled hands late
waiting for abbe to set up we make memories for a demo
