Just a little reminder regarding the Future of the Future Salon gathering tomorrow at SAP Labs 3410 Hillview Avenue. Room is upstairs at Northstar. Pizza My Heart on University right after. If the front door is closed, please call me on my cell: +1 415 3296 and I will come down to let you in.
As a prep I would like to share a couple of lines that really made my day from Nilofer an amazing sharp and warm women who once presented her book The New How at the Future Salon.
She replied and cced this group, but somehow it never made it through:

Can I just take a moment to thank you for the creativity, and thoughtfulness you have put into forming and ultimately shaping a community like this one. Of course, you have used this gift for your core living but it has been a gift well shared for and with all of us during the last few years. Community happens when you create a safe place for people to leave behind their titles, ranks, burdens and come together to think anew, imagine differently and be shaped by one another. I was only sorry that my family commitments and such kept me from spending more time with this group.
Wow, these lines really warmed my heart. If you want to be part of this heartwarmingadventure and help out Aslan with the organization of future Future Salons, please join us tomorrow, when the official hand-over will happen and you will have the chance to rejuvenate the format and implement your own ideas.
See you there, Mark.
P.S. Why Savannah? Because my wife is not feeling well and she has family there.
More details in my previous post.
