May 12th - Not sure what to think of this City Paper post on Learnapalooza. I guess any press is good press?? The Capitol Letters Writing Center, who put on "How to Create a Memorable Character" gave us a nice write up on their blog.
May 10th - Thank you, Local 16, for an awesome party and for buying all our workshop leaders a drink on the house!
May 10th - Great turnout! "Everything You Wanted to Know About Giant Pandas", one of the first sessions of the day, had 10 people and it only got better from there. "Improv for Facilitation" had 18 and was a lot of fun. Slackline had about 30 -- looked a little scary. Got my scooter fixed at "How to Fix Your Scooter". Woohoo! This is so fun!
