Thursday and Friday of this week, I'll be gearing up for the IIT Institute of Design Strategy Conference. I've never missed an ID Strategy conference and this year I'm really looking forward to it as one of the headliners is Chris Anderson of The Long Tail fame (whom I have yet to see speak).

Check out some of the footage I took from the conference back in 2005 (includes Bruce Nussbaum). The video is poor quality—but the content is solid. I'm be looking forward to the end of the week. And I'll be Twittering from the event so if you are interested, you can follow here.
If you are going, look me up and we'll have a chat.
