Back From DigitalNow in Orlando

I got back from DigitalNow last night, held at the Disney Yacht and Beach Club Convention Center in Orlando. It was a great 2 1/2 days - being able to spend time with Michael Kenyon and Gary Cook regarding Percussive Arts Society business is always terrific, and we heard and learned from several very good to great speakers and presenters.

The theme of this year's conference was Web 2.0 (check out Tim O'Reilly's writings to learn more about Web 2.0). My favorite speakers of the conference were Susan Scott of the business consulting firm Fierce, and Stephen M.R. Covey of FranklinCovey and CoveyLink.

Hearing and seeing so much about Web 2.0 not only confirmed that PAS is doing a great deal more than other music societies, but also demonstrated that there is more that we can be doing, and we plan on doing as much as possible with the web for our members and visitors. It was a great trip overall.
