Aren’t they supposed to be the no hassle anti-airline? If you can’t read the fine print, what just arrived in my inbox says: “Just register for this promotion between Date A and Date B for travel between Date C and Date D and we’ll send you a $50 voucher good for travel between Date E and Date F. Vouchers will be mailed on or after Date G. Offer expires on Date B” and now the kicker: “Restrictions apply* [asterisk! [sputter!]]” Oh what have we become??
cool stuff abounds. find your way on, off and around the gridI'm a writer and wide-eyed wanderer, culturemonger and experience collector. Born in New York and raised in Colorado, I've also lived in Sydney, France, Martinique and spent various random weeks and months exploring the spaces between. Possibly as a result, I'm not happy unless I'm on a plane twice a month going somewhere to discover something cool. This is where I'll attempt to collect and share some of the things I see in travel, design, retail, music, film, web, food, style. (I admit, focus has never been my strongsuit.) Day jobs have included years at big city branding shops, little town magazines and a stint heading up marketing for an alternative law firm's San Francisco office. I still have a foot in that pretty little city but my heart resides in Manhattan.
My other gigI'm also editrix-in-chief of TheDistillery, a marketing blog focused on media, design, and brands. It's a place where a bunch of stuff goes in and only the good stuff comes out. Drink up. DistilleryMedia.com.
