Rosy fingered dawn / flying into ORD.
Spent the day in Chicago for SEED. The conference was strikingly excellent. To get a better taste of the personalities behind Coudal, Fried, and Segura was an excellent treat and to hear them flesh out their ideas I've read portions of in front of a questioning audience was exceptional. Whether their interests line up with yours or not, it's readily apparent that these three are pursuing quality in the ways which speak out most to them, be it graphic design, code or just general intensity and that all by itself is a thing worth investigating.
