One of my many other hats….

Last week I had the pleasure of stepping away from my life as a designer and attended the Internet Retailer conference in beautiful San Diego, CA.  Although I didn’t get a second out in the sun by the pool (well not really sun thanks to june gloom), the conference was amazing, helpful, and an incredible opportunity to focus on what I think is our most promising growth distribution strategy, the internet.

Some facts from the Internet Retailer website:

The main sessions were HUGE
The IRCE conference included 100 sessions with some 175 speakers. Keynoters included Christopher Payne, president of eBay North America; Sona Chawla, president of e-commerce at Walgreen Co.; and Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post Media Group, now part of AOL.

The Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition 2011, held last week in San Diego, attracted 7,318 participants, 14% more than the 6,432 who attended last year’s IRCE in Chicago. That 2010 show had been the largest event in e-commerce until now.

Currently, I am in the midst of developing a new website and a new concept.  Details to follow shortly but for now, don’t forget to visit on occasion and sign up for our email list and get a coupon for free shipping, like our facebook page, and follow me on twitter!  Isn’t technology fun?
