It's being reported that Trimble, the company that owns Sketchup bought Frank Gehry's technology firm.

This should be interesting for Trimble's building technology arm. Even more interesting on how this could affect Sketchup's development.

We'll let you know more as we learn it!

I'm back!

If you've been keeping track, you might have noticed that I've been rather absent for nearly the entire month of April. I've been on many trips. Most of which forced me to be entirely off the grid. It's going to take several blog posts to cover them all, but to kick it off I want to start with my most favorite trip this month, and ever for that matter. I was lucky enough to be selected as a member of Blog Tour Italy. This trip wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for the generosity of Modenus and our sponsors:

The amount of awesome I experienced on this trip cannot be summed up in one post. So to kick things off, I'll just give you a photo taste of what went on in Italy:

In the coming days I will be sharing details about each and every stop. My camera worked overtime so expect a LOT of pictures as well.

We got a guided tour of Venice

We sang songs for Blanco

We experienced true bathroom beauty at Gessi

We toured Eurocucina

We toured Milan

I met some amazing new people

The Antiques Diva took us on an amazing tour of Italy's antiques culture

Dekton by Cosentino showed us that there is something that is even more durable than Silestone!

And last but certainly not least, the NKBA was there in personal support of our trip. While I don't have a drool worthy picture of the NKBA let me just say that it was very forward looking of them to be at the show. I've been a long time member of the NKBA and I was very excited to see them there.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blog Tour Milan, here I come

It's with great pleasure that I am announcing that I will be attending Blog Tour Milan this year! BlogTour-Logo-PbM-blk-grey

Thanks to the folks over at Modenus for graciously inviting me on this trip. We will be touring Eurocucina, a large kitchen and bath show. This will be my first time at this show. Stay tuned here for coverage under #BlogTourMilan

Where is Eurocucina? Italy. I'll be stopping in Venice first and then heading on to the show in Milan.

Maybe I'll get to drive some old Italian sports cars...
