Sound City – A film by Dave Grohl

images-2 The family next door and I are always talking about music. We like a lot of the same bands. Last week she came over and handed me this DVD and said I just had to watch it. She said it was about the Studio Sound City but kind of more about an old analogue soundboard that all these great records where recorded on. I have been trying to find the time to watch the film and finally sat down it last night. I have to say this is a really cool film. The film is a great snapshot of all these amazing records all connected to this same soundboard. Records like Nirvana’s Nevermind. The success of Nevermind is said to have rescued Sound City. If you are into music then you need to check out this film.


Join me for the ASTDps conference “Ignite Your Mojo”

I am very excited about the upcoming event ASTDps 2012 WORKPLACE LEARNING CONFERENCE: Ignite Your Mojo. This one-day conference that will be taking place on October 5, 2012 has been programmed to help you get your learning mojo on.  I am proud to be part of the planning committee. We have worked hard to put together a great program. We have a fantastic line-up of speakers already with more to be announced. I am hoping that a lot of my local friends will join me and of-course looking forward to meeting new ones.

One of the best things about conferences and events like this is the connections you make. It is always fun to share ideas and experiences with people who are working in the same industry as you. I have learned so much from the conversations and the back channels at conferences like this one. I have attended so many national events it will be great to make connections locally.
