Boulderizing

I'm off to the Conference on World Affairs in Boulder, CO, (April 7 - 11) for my favorite week of the year. This week, Monday through Friday for two hours each day, I'll be leading a discussion with the audience as we go through a great movie together, shot by shot. Last year it was "Chinatown."
