Over the river and through the woods to @HSR we go… Day 1 of new role (and commute) underway
Spending the day at Newport aquarium. FIIIIISH!
RT @amartindesign What was wrong w/ Tubby? Well he’s a great guy that inherited a Ferrari dealership & in 10 yrs turned it into a Kia Motors
!Louisville’s finally flexing at the right time of year - love it! Terrence Williams = tourney MVP; write that down
Hey Cats fans there is some good news coming out of Indy around 7:10 tonight. Tune in (via @joewheeler) haha
Car battery died, delaying my day of rest. AAA’s technician is jamming beastie boys and old school guns n roses so it’s all good
with the exception of NC, in what other state would a college basketball coach’s career move be considered BREAKING NEWS?
After Austin, Cincinnati, Baltimore and Nashville I’m somewhat disappointed by how much ‘possibility’ Louisville has overlooked :/
If I were a UI designer for facebook and/or facebook mobile iPhone app, I’d change my name and move to the sahara. No wonder I never use it.
One of the coolest guys and best business, er, ‘web’ strategists I’ve met in a while: @drewdiskin
Women make 80% of healthcare decisions. 83.5% of them use the web. 66% think healthcare marketers don’t undestand them.
Amid a deluge of economic woes, would you rather be good at predicting the rain or building arks?
Dinner at Capitol Grill in the Hermitage hotel: wise
Baltimore seemed vastly improved since my last visit (2003). [discounting entirely the news about body in the harbor yesterday]
Darius rucker (or his doppelgänger) is on this SDF -> BWI flight
what a gorgeous day! hurricane harper headed to cherokee park. me = PPT :/
My first day with HSR is Monday, March 30, 2009. HSR is an integrated marketing communications firm, and arguably the best business-to-business agency in the world. I’m not big on hyperbole, so by my decision to join you know that I must have been impressed with the people I met and the work I observed during the interview process.
I’ve always maintained an interest in the business of business, so I’m looking forward to the challenging aspects of a new life in the agency world especially with a B2B focus. “I’m long on imagination, and short on resources,” I told them. I think this move will be a good match in my goal to find equilibrium.
Leaving Louisville will be bittersweet indeed, but arguably overdue. I look forward to meeting the more of the HSR crew [and working with Ryan DeShazer], and immersing myself in a forward-thinking environment with respect to digital strategy and interactive marketing. The transition from Louisville to Cincinnati will prove to be a logistical challenge, but I’ll be glad to see many old friends and make new ones too. Pete Blackshaw, Dave Knox, Kevin Dugan: you’re on my radar and I hope to see/meet you soon. Skyline Chili, Chipotle, Montgomery Inn: consider yourselves in my cross hairs also.
I’ve accepted a role as a Senior Interactive Account Executive and I hope my career continues to blossom as I learn and grow with the organization. This should be an interesting and exciting new chapter in my personal and professional life. Thanks, all, for the well-wishes.
A big reason Louisville [not !Louisville] will continue to dominate into the future: @Earwood. Happy birthday, dude

after an awesome yet exhausting week/end, I’m returning to Louisville (and prepping for Cincinnati move) soon
i sincerely hope next year’s #sxsw panels lose the vapid fluff re: social media and get down to *business* - overall i was unimpressed

Note to #sxsw: F-bombs don’t make you cool. They make you sophomoric. 1 man’s opinion (via @chimoose)
New features in Adobe CS4 are pretty sick. OH: “wow, I’ll be out of a job” (with new efficiencies)
