Last time I visited my kids at OSU we went to lunch at Pot Belly's. My son had an internship at the State House across the street from PotBelly's. Hey I used to work with Dean Gordon, he should be in charge of Purchasing over there. We need to catch up...
Jeff Crook, how the hell are you? We worked together at TGIF's. A long time ago (1988), in a world far, far away (Plano, TX.) with Tom Mazza as our fearless RM. Anyway, good to see you again and what a beautiful family. Take care.
Thanks Jeff. Had no idea the amount of people I'd find here. Checked it out on a whim. Always feel free to give me a buzz when you need to or if I can help in any way.
Love how personal you can make it.
Crookie - great family photos. Don't need to ask you what's keepin you busy! Love to hear what you are up to and how you are liking potbelly. I'm sure you are making a difference there as you did at t&K. Life is good for me. I'm working with Amanda Hite and a host of others for Talent Revolution. We are having a blast and actually making some money which is always a good thing. Enjoy those precious moments with your kids and give my regards to Cindy. Please stay in touch. BC

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.
Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.
At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
