I've been traveling to NYC for weeks working on a marketing campaign with some friends from my past professional life. While it was awesome to reconnect and play with all the toys the big apple has to offer, it felt even better to be back tonight. I want to send a big shout out to our permanent alternate moderator Mark Weston @shiftparadigmn for bringing his expertise into play on my behalf theses last few weeks-I owe you big time! And to my partner in #whatisschool Craig Kemp for holding down the fort in my absence. But most of all I want to send a big shout to you for bringing your great ideas and learning experiences each week. You are superstars! Archives from tonight's chat are posted below.
