Just back from US: my flight from SFO was significantly delayed by a crashing downpour as we were about to take off, then we took a while to get into JFK, probably because snow was slowing things down, so until the last moment I was convinced I would miss my connection – but didn’t. Read two books on the way across: David Siegel’s Pull and Chip and Dan Heath’s Switch, plus the latest editions of Fast Company and Wired. All feeding the ferment in my mind.
Oli Barrett sent two photos as I travelled: one of Ian (Keay, our best man way back in 1973) and I at the Birch/Bebo party, and a collage of the Clean & Cool Mission participants. The images capture the good humour of the enterprise which, in turn, reflected its energy, interconnectivity and productivity. Will be writing up my thoughts on it all in my six monthly columns tomorrow – and, hopefully, the first of a series of blogs for Fast Company.
Truly invigorating week – and nice to tie it off with breakfast on Friday morning with Jennifer (Biringer) and Patrin (Watanatada) of SustainAbility San Francisco. A whole bunch of new ideas now fizzing around our collective brainpan.
