Since Last We Spoke, 8/19/13

Last week officially began my Fall travel season.  Through the week before Christmas, I will be on the road some portion of every week, save 3 (and one of those is Thanksgiving). So I have front-loaded my iPad with reading material (some of which has nothing to do with work), rotated the batteries in all of my electronic accessories (noise canceling headphones, remote for my laptop, etc.) and [big sigh] put my kiddo on a plane so she can get back to school. And in the midst of it all? Some fantastic projects, including our latest Sustainability course. Naturally much (but not all) of what I’ve been reading since last we spoke is focused on that:
