Congratulations, Friends – Obama Team appoints Crawford, Werbach

I’m thrilled to be able to write that my friends Susan Crawford and Kevin Werbach have been named to review the FCC for the Obama transition team. I’ve been a fan of Susan’s work on One Web Day and have participated since she started it. (photo credit: I was asked to be a One Web Day Ambassador this year.

I’ve also had the privilege of working for Kevin on his annual Supernova conference for the last 2 years. Kevin Werbach

I am extremely pleased that these two individuals, who I know have very clear ideas on how technology and communications can be used to help all Americans learn and gain access will be in key roles reviewing current policy. I can only hope they also get key roles in the administration. Congratulations, both Kevin and Susan.

Street Smarts Live – an Inc. Magazine Event

Tonight I went to an event sponsored by Inc. Magazine (where I write for the Start-Up blog). The event featured Norm Brodsky, a serial entrepreneur and writer of the Street Smarts column, and Bo Burlingham, Inc. Magazine Editor at large.

I ran into Lauren Solomon of LS Image Associates, whom I worked with several years ago, and haven’t seen in good while. She introduce me to Elyissia Wassung of 2 Chicks with Chocolate.

We went inside, and here are my live blogging notes (excuse typos and partial sentences – this is raw note-taking).
