First stop was Columbus, home of the #1 ranked buckeyes (a fact of which was was frequently reminded). Had a nice chat with some OSU undergrads in the afternoon, then headed over to for a terrific evening town hall. About 60 people showed up for an engaging discussion at the Milo Arts center. Great old restored elementary school that has been converted into an artist friendly community center. We need more of those. Thanks again Jana for being such a welcoming and generous host. A very engaged and inquisitive group. (anyone have pics? my camera didn’t work)
Second stop was Bloomington, IN…

Spent the morning touring the Berklee College of music – amazing facility. State of the art everything. Kids everywhere with guitars, saxophones, drumsticks… was waiting for everyone to suddenly break out into some big choreographed number… “fame?”

Red Barn Recap…

Well I must say, that’s some of the most beautiful country I’ve ever seen. Took me quite a while to get to Amherst because I kept stopping to take pictures of the changing foliage. Mesmerizing. Passed the stunning stone buildings at Mt Holyoke College (which I learned from some evening attendees are all haunted). I took the liberty of adding some of these pix to the blog for your viewing pleasure…

Los Angeles Recap…

Started the day off with a stimulating conversation with students at USC’s Annenberg school. Thanks to Aram for inviting me. Particularly interested to hear the students’ thoughts on the listener-to-listener part of the service. Los of lessons to be learned from the existing social network sites.
Amazing location for the evening get together at the Silent Theatre. Quite a bit of discussion around the rigths and opportunities for artists – clearly reflective of the many musicians, and music label folks in the audience.
