We just finished our first of three visits to New York on the book tour. It was a phenomenally great time and we want to thank everyone who came out and made it such a success.
On our first night we had a nice crowd at The Magician. Plenty of opportunities to put faces to names. It was a pleasure to meet people from a side cross section of the green, NGO and design communities. We also had a crew from Ibrido filming (more on that when the clips are ready to view).

We had some nice meetups with New York media on Friday, including Self Magazine, Plenty and Lazy Environmentalist. Friday night we had a wonderful party hosted by TED, from whom our original funding came. The space was beautiful and so many wonderful supporters came out to celebrate with us. In the photo at left are musician and composer Michael Montes, who did the score for Worldchanging's Ed Burtynsky slideshow, and Jehane Noujaim, a 2005 TED Prize winner and director of The Control Room. In the team pic on the homepage are Kimberly Oliver and Rebecca Silver of Haute Green and our own Tessa Levine-Sauerhoff. We were also delighted to see Stefan Sagmeister there, and a number of the contributors to the book whose homebase is in the Big Apple. Thanks to everyone who made this event possible.
