Here at the CJM...this is one of those "I frickin' love my job" moments...glad my cell phone got a perfect, blurry pic so I could get the feel for the kids in the galleries without any real faces without permission.

To follow up on an earlier post -- excited about being a part of Rocco Landesman's visit to SF, The New York Times ran a great article about Landesman's work. One of the pix is of Landesman and crew looking at the CJM...squint, you can seem it gleam in their eyes :)

Was jazzed when he was first appointed...
"The Kunstmuseum Basel, the world’s first public museum, began with the city’s purchase of a private collection in 1661...."

John Killacky has been an important mentor for me during my time out here in the Bay Area. He has been an important mentor for SO MANY people and had a really profound impact on the arts in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. Burlington, VT is a very lucky place!

This was part of the Spectra Gram portion where Beth Kanter asked the participants to place themselves along a line from Social Media "Flyer" to "Crawler" then the group engaged and presented across the spectrum. It was a great activity.
What an amazing day...To see Beth Kanter's slides click here.

I am sharing a table with two men from the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus, the oldest Gay Men's Chorus in the country.
And as we went around with introductions, one of the men representing the SFGMC said something like - we are still not sure if there's value in using Twitter.
I did a quick search for "gay mens chorus" on Twitter - part of the "listening" Beth Kanter encourages as Stage 1. The results early on included the "tweets" below for Gay Men's Choruses around the country.
WOW! Read: "Beth's Work Has Impact."
Thank you, Beth.
...and it's not so much about the money, right? it's actually about 'influencers' and meaningful messages around your mission. Things like this, right?:
