Getting ready for e.g.

In less than two weeks, I'll be taking a short pilgrimage from San Francisco to Monterey for the e.g. -- an event that has been summarized to me by a previous attendee as "what TED used to be."


I'm going this year for the opportunity to both teach and learn from other passionate creators and leaders (and will be sharing it with you here). I want you to experience it with me -- so I'll make every humanly possible effort to document the experiences worth sharing here. If I miss any updates, I apologize now --  my main focus will be taking it all in. I've been told it's basically a fire-hose of experiences specifically tuned for the creatives in attendance.

In the past year or so, I've been slowly building relationships with you -- the readers of this blog. My most fascinating discussions have been with you, the best opportunities I've pursued (some public, some not yet) have come from you. Since there's likely significant overlap between the BigThink audience and the e.g. audience, I hope I can meet some more of you at the event. Let me know in the comments if you're going (or if you'll be around Monterey from April 7-9) and let's meet up!

Can't make it to Monterey? I'll also be speaking online on April 11th for Markedu and April 13th in Sonoma for MarketLive's Summit and would love to meet up with new folks around both. Let me know if you want to meet up!

Map of the World's Countries Rearranged by Population

China moves to Russia and India takes over Canada. The Swiss get Bangladesh, the Bangladeshi India. And the U.S.? It stays where it is. 

Strange Maps

What if the world were rearranged so that the inhabitants of the country with the largest population would move to the country with the largest area? And the second-largest population would migrate to the second-largest country, and so on?
