San Francisco’s annual Architecture and the City Festival kick’s off at the end of the month with its opening party on August 30th. However, if you are interested in participating in the tours, the discussions, movies and more, you may want to consider picking-up your event tickets sooner rather than later. The festival is celebrating its 10 year anniversary as the nation’s largest architectural festival of its kind.

KA Connect kicked off their third annual conference this morning to this year’s theme “Pushing the Edge of Practice.” The connections where flowing as soon as the doors opened at 8:30. Before breakfast wrapped and the program started I made a new connection on Evernote Hello, received three business cards, and had just as many business cards in hand.
