Will I see you at TEDx Transmedia in Rome?

TEDx Transmedia RomeI am thrilled about participating in TEDx Transmedia. I’ll be the final speaker there at the end of the day.  They have a stellar lineup of speakers, all exploring the future potential for media.  It’s happening in Rome on September 28.

Driving Tour of the Gorges du Verdon, in the Alpes-du-Haute-Provence, France

A narrow road has been carved out of the cliff high above the green river. It’s a hair-raising drive: a sheer vertical drop of more than 2300 feet, in many places too narrow for two-way traffic, with craggy rock overhangs, blind curves and hairpin turns, and thrillingly, no guardrail (!!) The road begins in the ancient fortified village of Castellane that guards a narrow mountain pass. At La-Palud-sur-Verdon, climbers gather to scale the vertiginous heights. And the road ends at Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, a breathtakingly beautiful medieval town perched on a mountainside, where paragliders sail silently from the mountain face hundreds of meters above. The local Provencal farmhouses have been turned into upscale villas and fancy resorts.
