On the ground in Beverly Hills with 3,000 global leaders

My long, but uneventful travel is complete: I’ve checked into the hotel where Rafat & Co.’s EconSM: Economics of Social Media conference takes place tomorrow. The hotel lobby was jammed with media so I assumed they were here for something more than my checking-in. Apparently, “3,000 of the world’s leading decision-makers” are at this hotel wrapping up the 10th Anniversary Milken Institute Global Conference. Curious about who is speaking, I went to their website and discovered they have a Trilateral-commission-esque group of 470 speakers and panelists. 470! I’m glad they’ve finished up today. Those global leader types probably throw loud hotel-room parties.

  • Rex– You stayin’ the weekend? Going to attend the LA Times festival of Books extravaganza at UCLA this weekend? If so, come on down! (I’ll be there both days; I’ve posted a reading I’ll be at and where I’m doing booth duty on my blog). You got my email address in this post, write me and I’ll give you my cel number.

    Sorry, Susan. I’m heading back to NashVegas on Friday. Sounds like a great event.
