West Coast Green

This show rocks.  The keynote speakers are compelling, and inspiring.  It is interesting, because many of them speak of things that have nothing to do with Green Building.  A consistent theme has been the concept of doing purpose driven work, starting with examining your own life.  This morning, we saw 4 speakers in the keynote session including Sarah Susanka, who wrote the Not So Big House series and Chris Jordan who creates photographic art that captures some of the myriad issues around consumption and waste.  Because the speakers are so interesting, more in line with speakers at TED, the attendees are energized and motivated to go out and do great green work.  Everyone is doing such interesting things that I have to be careful not to just network my way through the show, and never attend any of the educational sessions.
