Is Facebook Killing more than just the Rockstar?

Remember when you turned nine years old and you had about just as many kids to your birthday party?  If you were lucky Mom made funfetti cupcakes and you ran around so much that broccoli would have tasted good by days end.  You had a fantastic day and of course your Mom had to take [...]

Finding your Art – Papier-mâché style

What is my art? This was a question that was frequently brought up at a recent Icarus Sessions that I attended.  This is something we all ask ourselves from time to time, maybe not in the same form but a pseudo version of it. What is my art? What is my purpose? What is my [...]
