Amar Bhide's The Venturesome Economy listed as one of the top books of the year by Business Week Magazine.

Dr. Bhide tells me he will be here with us in Denver sometime in late January or February, but it won't be on Ben Franklin's birthday after all.

Who would be a good speaker to help us celebrate January 17?

Josh attended the Denver IDEA Cafe for the first time last Friday. He just sent me this email. When I asked via return email if it was OK to share it with you, he said sure, so here it is:


Thanks again for hosting the Idea CafĂ©. There should be at least one of those in every city as far as I’m concerned. And thanks also for inviting me to join the Speaker’s Corner. I’m looking forward to participating one of these days. I couldn’t remember if you were interested in coming to Tuggl’s Community Managers event on Wednesday night or not, but here is the info nonetheless:

Keep in touch, John. You’re really working on some novel and important things.
