I'm thrilled to announce that the Princeton Merchants Association will be hosting an event that's dear to my heart – focused on Experience Design! On October 22, the PMA will host a workshop in Princeton, NJ that aims to build on the great work of Princeton area entrepreneurs and businesses. Please come, join and share! Let's all learn a little... together!
Yesterday our farm in New Jersey hosted Blake + Company (a film company) as it documents examples of solar panel installations in both residential and commercial locations across the country. For the film crew, it seems that a farm with a solar panel installation was novel enough to make a compelling story. For us, it was just as novel to have a film crew on our farm. My mother and one her horses were interviewed for the story with our barn’s solar array featured prominently in the background. I’d have to say that for all parties it was a novel experience :)
Aimee Mullins, track star extraordinaire, has demonstrated amazing confidence and effort to overcome seemingly insurmountable physical barriers. While at Georgetown she decided that she was not yet ready to stop her athletic career. In spite of a real physical limitation – she requires two below-knee prosthetic limbs – she set out to participate in intercollegiate sports. And participate she did.
Thanks to the help of some truly remarkable designers and engineers, Aimee has broken many molds. Now a record setting runner, a fashion model and an activist, she has demonstrated just how far ambition, design and technology can take us. Inspired? I know I am!
