Title: 21 Items (4-11-09) sponsored by 11TH ANNUAL BREW FEST EXTRAVAGANZA

A Saturday, rainy edition.
The newsletter is sent to just under 3,000 emails currently.  Would really like to see it above the 3k mark.  Can you maybe add a few friends?

How about our Phillies?  Could we be off to a worse start?  Seems like we do this every year under Charlie.  I went to opening night, bringing a good buddy from back home and my parents to the game. GReat tailgate weather and fun day except for the game itself.  I was looking at some dates the Phillies will be at Wrigley Field this summer. Eyeing the August 11-13 dates.  Anyone have interest in heading to Chicago for some Phillies games?

Speaking of travel, when I flew to Seattle last week with US Airways, there was no movie, meal, pillows, or blankets.  The world we now live in.....

And more good press for my friend Anne and Andrew at Back on My Feet: http://www.hulu.com/watch/66255/nbc-nightly-news-with-brian-williams-phillys-homeless-run-toward-a-better-life

Commercializing Your Intellectual Property

April 14, 2009
Federal Reserve Bank, 7th and Arch Streets
5:30-8:00 pm

The greater Philadelphia region has a rich history of fostering invention. The technologies enabled by local inventors and other creators of intellectual property have given rise to many successful enterprises. However, discovery of a useful invention or creation of potentially useful technology does not ensure commercial success. Entrepreneurs attempting to commercialize their inventions or technology face many challenges and obstacles. Please join the Forum at our April 14th meeting when we will discuss "Commercializing Your Intellectual Property".

Moderator: Francis X. Taney, Jr. of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC

Panelists include:
Adam Rosen, CEO of K-Technology Corporation
Anthony Gold, CEO of Healthy Humans, LLC
Marilyn Montross, Senior VP, Vendor Relations, QVC Corporation

A voluntary donation of $10 will be accepted at registration
