We hit the road in our convertible, Red Baby, and head to the New Media Expo in Las Vegas. We share squabbles and happy memories as we travel Route 66, return to the site of the world’s former tallest thermometer in Baker, CA and have lunch with the Mad Greek. I make friends with filmmaker, Greg Hemmings and interview fellow conference attendee, Hope Schaefer about health care and new media.
