He has a new book out Chat Republic.
Here is my review
Winston Churchill said that “History will be kind to me for I intend to write it”. Today history is being tapped out on keyboards and touch-screens of emergent digital Churchills. Chat Republic is the lexicon of that social language used by today’s Churchill’s. The book provides the origins, applications and parables of its emergence, power and influence. If you’ve had a blind eye to the Chat Republic this book will restore your sight by taking you through the significance of the amplification of conversation that only could have arisen in the age where history will be written in 140 characters.

Hi everyone – been a couple months since the last show.
As many of you know I tend to go crazy and do a show every week for awhile the crawl back to my cave only to reemerge when I feel I have something to contribute.
Right now. I am in the cave. Pondering, exploring and wondering what is next. I have something I want to say. But because of the nature of it … so until next time.

Stephanie Petro: Creative Design Director
Stephanie’s passion for teaching designers and artisans how to design with respect for the earth stems from her earlier experiences. While studying for her BS in Interior Design at Northridge University, she interned at a sustainable design firm where she was shocked at the unbelievable mass of unwanted materials left by the wayside. From that point on, she promised to always find a way to incorporate some form of upcycled material into her designs and to improve the fabrication process while respecting people, the planet and its resources.
She was invited by her younger sister, Jessica to display her latest jewelry collection at her workplace. One of the buyers was H. Cunningham who found the pieces so unique, he asked to meet the artisan.
They shared a common vision, to help others and the respect for people and the planet.
It was the beginning of Hearts…

This week’s show will discuss the world’s continuous growth and urbanization. Associate Producer Cami Fledderman joins Derrick Mains in a dialogue that responds to Gary Hustwit’s film, Urbanized. Americans tend to think of urban problems such as traffic congestion and land use in terms of the US only. The movie discusses it at an international scale giving specific situations, challenges, actions, and results.
