Salt Lake City : Alt Summit.

{via ffffound, no source}

Day 1, 10:35 am MWT

I must really, really love design because I’ve been up since 3:45 this morning. My journey to Alt began in Oklahoma City at 6:30 and after a swift connection in Denver, I arrived in beautiful Salt Lake City around 10:30.

As I wait in the SLC airport’s Starbucks for Greedy Girl to arrive (the silly thing booked a different connecting flight out of Denver than me) I’ve made a few observations:

  • There’s an oddly disproportionate number of attractive people here.
  • This is the best music I’ve ever heard played at an airport Starbucks, and I’ve been to my share. It sounds like they’re sharing my iTunes.
  • I haven’t seen any celebrities making their way to Sundance. Yet. But I have seen a few too many people trying too hard to look like a celebrity.
  • I should have packed more shoes. I forgot the ones I wanted to wear Saturday night.

So as you can see, so far so good! After checking into the hotel I’m off to the early bird lecture, How to Find the Best Design Sites. Then tonight it’s off to Speed Networking and the Hollywood Opening Social. If you’re not already, follow me on Twitter for more updates throughout the day!

    First of all- awesome and have fun! All of my favorite design bloggers seem to be there right now.

    But mostly I feel compelled to comment about the photo you posted. That is a building I pass by everyday on my commute in Connecticut. I usually get to spend a lot of time staring at it while sitting in bumper to bumper traffic (le sigh) and I often contemplate stopping off for a drink to wait out the congestion… but I never do, I have yet to step foot in the building…

    Anyhoo, it was just cool to see a local landmark up on the Interwebs 🙂

    I love this blog! Just found it and can't stop reading it or look at the pictures. =)

    Since you are all into design, I was wondering if you maybe know where I can find designed doormats with the Smiths song "THere's a light that never goes out" printed on it? I've heard of them doormats, but can't find them online.

    Regards from Ella in
