Journal: Something Better Than Man

August 14, 2012

in Journal Notes

Location Tuesday:  Seven  |  Studio     ||     7:40 am – 9:35 pm

  • Recruiting:  5 Interviews today.  We hired a framebuilder for Seven today!  Yay; one person on board, and seven more to go.  Maybe eight more; we discussed bringing in one more welder today, again; I think we’re going to do this – in part because we might have found the right person.  Time will tell.
  • Project x25:  Seven Cycles is in a bit of preseason mode.  We’re finalizing the 2013 programs, products, POP, and lots of other aspects that delineate the 2012 season from the 2013 season.  It’s prbably 25 projects that we’re going to wrap up on the next week and a half.  Piece of pie.
  • Quote:  “I’m behind on being behind.”  – Rob V.
  • Note:  The event schedule for Ride Studio Cafe is tumbling out of control again.  Not sure how we’re going to pull off about 2.5 events per month through the end of the year.
  • Event Ride:  The Ride Studio Cafe is participating in a fundraiser ride this Sunday, August 19.  We’re riding with the Charles River Wheelmen.  We have a lot of friends in the Wheelmen so we’re looking forward to doing our part to help this fundraiser.  We’ve donated more then $4,500 in goods and services to the cause.
  • Project:  Trying to set up a Ride Studio Cafe Team event.  Impressively challenging to get the entire team in one room.
  • Graphic Design:  Spent about 3-minutes on a new set of Ride Studio Cafe T-shirt designs.  Mmmm.

Post title:

“I’m a seeker too. But my dreams aren’t like yours. I can’t help thinking that somewhere in the universe there has to be something better than man. Has to be.”  George Taylor, Planet of the Apes, 1968.  Smoking cigarillo’s in space.
