Sitting here at the airport ready to make my way from cold and snowy Salt Lake City to sunny and pleasant Scottsdale for the Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Auction. I am assuming most of you are familiar with the event, which happens every year at this time in Arizona. I grew up in Scottsdale, and strangely have never been. Probably an aversion to traffic.
But I am going to brave it now. I have been invited to participate in one of the free Car Culture symposiums held at Barrett-Jackson, specifically pertaining to the merging of Car Culture and Youth Culture. Obviously I was invited because of my video game prowess. At least I hope. Actually, now that I think about it, since the last video game I played was Super Mario 30 years ago, I guess it is because of diecast.
Nonetheless, I’ll be on stage at 9am MST ready to talk with my fellow panelists, and if you would are around, I would love to see you there. The event is free. If you aren’t there, you can stream it live on the Barrett-Jackson Facebook Page.
Hope to see you.
