Publisher's Note ~ TV and Gina

Summertime, and the living is easy...especially in August when the pace all around slows to an even more molasses-in-January rate. But don't mistake the lack of activity, or any lackadaisical attitude as added indication of the end of things.
We here at CPC Worldwide Headquarters are planning an all-out attack of wildly amusing and informative events and literary endeavors for you. So don't give up hope and don't touch that dial!

Speaking of dials, tune into TechTV this Tuesday, August 7th (7:00 PM - 8:30 PM) to see yours truly appear on the "Screen Savers" show. I'll be talking about what's going on in the Alley and Valley, who's an 'up and comer' and other juicy tidbits. Have some newsworthy gossip? Send me a note!

As you will see from this week's publication, we now have on board the extremely talented and vivacious writer Gina Larson contributing on a regular basis. She and our staff and alliance network are hard at work planning scintillating panels for the fall. Our lineup includes another panel on the theme of Fashion-during Fashion Week and as a precursor to our Holiday Black Tie benefit we'll explore Non-Profits and Philanthropy in November.

Understanding all too well that not everyone is a morning person, we're expanding our lineup to include our spine-tingling Stardust Circle! Launching this series will be our "Small Talks" series on Nanotechnology, co-produced with Mark Modzelewski, founder of the recently formed US NanoBusiness Alliance. The first of the series will be in New York in October, after which we plan on bringing the series to Philadelphia, Houston and Chicago.

Even though New York City is an international town, we've never been one to just stay in town and absorb the world. Hence, we'll be heading off to sunny Stockholm (in November!) after our October panel on the world of wireless.

Of course, we'll also be bringing our bag of tricks and good cheer to other cities too! So check out our calendar of events at: to see when we'll be in your neck of the woods.

And with that...I now present, the talented Gina Larson...
