Hillman on Canal Street – A Certain Type of Penetration

I was in NYC over the Fourth of July weekend. Hopping off the from-Brooklyn subway, I popped onto Canal Street looking for some mix tapes. They have all the bootleg software booths too, and as I paused to look at one at one of the displays, I saw my coworkers face staring back at me for a book cover.

I guess that when your book makes it to the carts on Canal Street you’ve penetrated pop culture to a special degree.

As previously noted, I’m working on a project with Hillman Curtis, who’s book it is.

Plans for Italy

After going to the CHI Conference in Vienna in a few weeks, Aimee and I will be extending our trip a week, spending the time in Italy. The plan is to spend a few days in Florence, a night in the Tuscany countryside, and then 3 days in rome.

To keep it in one place, I’ve posted all the relevant information below:

Florence:
Bellevue House
(review)

Tuscany:
La Crociona
(Review and another review)

Rome:
Lancelot Hotel
(Review, another)

Overall info:
Planning Info & Instructions for visitors, including language stuff (phrases and words)


Anybody have suggestions or input? Would love to learn even more local and must-see things to do.

(btw, I have a wonderful partner-in-crime who compiled this great plan and thorough research!)
