Drinks were drunk, talk was talked, hob was nobbed at last Thursday evening's gathering at The Magician to celebrate the release of WorldChanging: A User's Guide for the 21st Century. It was great to say a rare face-to-face hello to some of our compadres from the Left Coast: Alex Steffen, Jeremy Faludi, Tessa Levine-Sauerhoff, Leif Utne and Sarah Rich. From the WorldChanging NYC blog team, Cynthia Barton (Architecture for Humanity NY), Wendy Brawer (Green Map System), Mark Caserta (3rLiving), Patrick di Justo, David Leon, and Starre Vartan (eco-chick) came out. Also sighted: Ben Jervey (author of The Big Green Apple, [and maybe he'll write for us too sometime]), peakguy -- aka Glenn of peak oil blog The Oil Drum NYC -- Margaret Lydecker (Green Drinks NYC), Jill Fehrenbacher (Inhabitat, WorldChanging book and global site contributor), Peter Rojas (Engadget), Jill Danyelle (fiftyRx3 ), Michelle Bates (photographer and author of the new book "Plastic Cameras"), Remy Chevalier (of The Environmental Library and other endeavors), and Deborah Aaronson (our marvelous editor at Harry N. Abrams), among many others...
Thanks to everyone who came by!
