I am still amazed at last week’s CRE//Tech event in New York City. I have been attending the events since the beginning and it’s tremendous to see how far this organization has come in such a short time.
I was lucky enough to see Springsteen on Broadway recently. Everything you have read about it is true. My favorite quote about the show comes from Oprah Winfrey who said, “It was the most searingly beautiful performance I’ve ever seen a person give. You come away feeling more like a human being.”
Last week, I attended the CRE//Tech event in Los Angeles. While I flew 3,000 miles to be there, the journey started over a year ago.
It started with a simple phone call to my friend, Pierce Neinken, the founder of what was then called CRE//Tech Intersect. I explained to him that I was hoping he would partner with Michael Beckerman and The News Funnel to take it to the next level.
Today marks the 40th anniversary of release of one of my favorite movies of all time, Star Wars. For those that are confused, I am referring to the original, also known as A New Hope, or Episode IV.
