PUSH the Future
Starting tomorrow evening I’m enthused, intrigued and delighted to be covering the PUSH Conference right here in my backyard in Minneapolis. I’ve known of it for its life thus far, but circumstances have never aligned so attending it hasn’t been an option in the past. The stars aligned now so I’ll be there.
“The PUSH Conference is designed for business leaders, policymakers, brand and R&D executives as well as venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, artists and others charged with shaping the future and leading the marketplace of ideas. Founder Cecily Sommers notes, “The PUSH conference brings together leading thinkers from across many multi-cultural and global disciplines to dissect and analyze change. PUSH offers a first-look at the people, ideas and technology transforming our world.”
If you read my blog frequently you may have come across one of my favorite phrases: pushing against the membrane of the future (like in this post which describes what I mean fully). My hope is to be surrounded by audience members pushing against that membrane in their own way and listening to conversation starters who’ve been pushing at it for some time in a given spot…and all indications are that this is precisely what I’ll find.
Howard Rheingold, the author, tech visionary and speaker at last year’s conference said, “PUSH is absolutely the best conference ever! l speak at a lot of these things, and there’s a heart and soul at PUSH that is rare and special, and really stands out.” Big praise from someone who is all over the world at thought leading events.
So stay tuned and I’ll be bringing you recaps and perspectives of this conference as I attempt to capture the zeitgeist of these two and a half days.

Connecting the Dots Podcast
Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows.
