Rich Silverstein Visually Blogs for HuffPo and You Get to Critique Him

2007-11-15-Posters_events_150.jpg

Bloggoddess Arianna Huffington writes that there were two people at the Google Zeitgeist gathering that stuck in her mind: Sustainable South Bronx’s Majora Carter (who we admired in Aspen) and Rich Silverstein, who showed clips of the most powerful moments in radio, TV, and film.

In fact, Huffington was so taken with Silverstein’s mastery of powerful messages, she asked him to contribute something that would “help the Democrats” in the upcoming election. Three posters with the slogan “Haven’t we had enough? Democrats ’08″ are posted for your approval, so if you’ve got some feedback for Silverstein (or maybe if you never got that job at Goodby and are chronically bitter), just post a comment below the posters. He’ll be reviewing the comments and posting revised ones after Thanksgiving. Although we’re not really sure of the quality of feedback he’s getting; at this point most of the 798 comments are just partisan laundry lists. Personally, we like this approach better.

@issue Conference Almost Sold out

We have word that the second @issue Business & Design Conference is nearly full, so this is your last chance to carefully orchestrate bumping into Paul Saffo in the bathroom. The April 23 conference takes place at the too-beautiful-for-words de Young Museum in San Fran and will include UnBeige favorites like Joe Duffy, Rich Silverstein and the caffeinated-haired Stanley Hainsworth. Sadly, the behind-the-scenes tour of Pixar the next day has sold out, but those who didn’t get in will get a complimentary copy of Cars to watch in their hotel rooms.

The conference is only $450 for non-foundation members, which works out to about $45 per speaker and that, friends, is a steal.
