    Here’s another teaser for the teaser for the teaser for the teaser that will eventually become a movie called “Death to the 50” created by Citizen Pictures for the 2008 Denver 50 call-for-entries. While this is pretty damn awesome, we do hope the entire film is completed and released to the public before actual entries are due on the 22nd of August. Time for some overtime, fellas.

    So, the rules and regs for the New Denver Ad Club’s annual show have appeared on their site with little build-up and luster. Apparently, the club is still waiting on Citizen Pictures to finish up the film to get people riled up to enter work. Speaking of, how many of you out there are planning to send some stuff in this year (August 22 deadline)?

  • NDAC &#38; CP+B Present: Jason Fried

    / Comments (0)

    We’ve heard Jason Fried of 37signals speak before and, believe us, you will not leave disappointed and uninspired. This is one to hit on Thursday night. RSVP here.

    You’re invited to not one, but two full Happy Hours and an informal lecture and discussion about “Getting Real,” featuring Jason Fried, Co-founder and President of 37signals. Jason will be talking about some of the things he’s learned about collaboration, entrepreneurship, hiring people, stumbling into things, scratching your own itch and figuring things out along the way. There will be cocktails and hors d’oeuvres so essentially, you’ve got an hour to enjoy each. Use your time wisely.

    Jason Fried is the co-founder and President of 37signals, a privately-held Chicago-based company committed to building the best web-based tools possible with the least number of features necessary. 37signals’ unconventional approach to business brings a fresh new perspective on how to be an entrepreneur and build a successful business today. 37signals’ products include Basecamp, Highrise, Backpack, Campfire, Ta-da List, and Writeboard. 37signals also developed and open-sourced the Ruby on Rails programming framework. 37signals’ products do less than the competition – intentionally.
