This week, I've been preoccupied with the ALT Summit -- a conference f0r designers, artists and other creative entrepreneurs.  It is always an inspiring conference, and I love that it has always been held in Salt Lake City, in the dead of winter -- it's such a different setting than I'm used to, and I find the change of scenery great for getting the creative juices flowing.

I don't have any links to share with you today -- I've been busy working on my talk (which happens today at 1:15 pm today, by the way, in Breakout Room 3, so come join me if you're here!).  But I do have some snapshots that I've been taking while I'm here, so I thought I'd share them with you today.

  I meant to sleep in on Thursday morning, but since my body was still on Central Time, I woke up unreasonably early.  It was pretty to still see the night twinkle lights on the trees at the   Grand America   still on, though.
