We have come to a close of the American Express OPEN "Adventures in Entrepreneurship" event. This has been an extremely positive experience. I want to take a moment to thank the outstanding people involved: Rob May, Dane Carlson, Clay Shirky, Di-Ann Eisnor and Stacy Hoffman of Community Centric, and Thomas Harris and Lexi Reese of American Express OPEN. You can't help but learn from talented people like these, and walk away richer in experience. American Express OPEN throughout this offline/online event has treated the bloggers with respect. They recognized that our time has value. Not only have they compensated us for our time and effort, but they did several things to promote the bloggers and our blogs. American Express OPEN ranks number one bar none, in my book, and operates as a good corporate blogging citizen. I hope we can look forward to future events and that they can involve a wider circle of bloggers.
