I recently stumbled on an interesting TedX talk by Angela Ahrendts. The nearly 14 min talk focuses on human energy, bringing people together, and accomplishing great things. To Ahrendts, energy is the summation of three factors: trust, intuition and belief. But my summary won’t do the talk justice, click play and let it sink in.
Early this month I was down in Florida attending the first Okeechobee music festival. In spite of this being the inaugural year of the festival, it was pleasantly well executed. The campgrounds we clean and easy to get to. The festival grounds were only a short distance away and the water refill stations were both easy to find and quick to access. Moreover, the lineup — headlined by Mumford and Sons and Kendrick Lamar — was phenomenal.
As with any first generation product, there is some room for improvement. Most importantly, the volunteers need a little more training and instruction. My buddy misplaced his wallet and each time we asked for the location of the lost and found we were directed [sometimes rudely] in contradicting directions. The festival organizers should also work to improve cell reception at the campsites. However, this is mostly nitpicking.
Overall, Okeechobee was a fantastic experience. I had an unforgettable time in Florida and look forward to year two.
Below is a playlist of all my coverage for Okeechobee:
Hey, what’s up, hello? Welcome to my blog. I have a myriad of interests — law, technology, fitness, and music just to name a few. On this website I plan to share interesting stories, jot down my thoughts, and give updates on the projects I’m working on.
In the past, this space was focused solely on technology reviews, tips, and tricks. It was essentially an extension of my YouTube channel, providing me a space, for example, to share more detailed reviews than video would singularly allow. Moving forward, content like that will be pushed to a different location. Instead, this blog will more closely connect to my non-technology interests.
