In the guest chair:
Camille Russell Love, the Executive Director for the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs joined us to talk about the ELEVATE Arts Festival that runs from October 17th through the 23rd.
Adam Rabinowitz from Instacart also joined us live to talk about Atlanta’s new grocery delivery service and how it’s different than Webvan! I have to share that I used the service later that day and it was the bomb! Love.

In the headlines:
- A Wells Fargo employee has told his CEO John Stumpf that he thinks everyone in the company should get a $10,000 raise. Wondering how that conversation went public and what the CEO thinks?
- The Atlanta Botanical Garden is doing what a lot of other cultural attractions in Atlanta need to do. Thinking outside the box. They are about to close their cafe and instead open a brand new restaurant run by one of Atlanta’s hottest chefs. Bravo!
- The Biz Chron is reporting that a local healthcare tech firm Ingenious Med is about to be sold for $110 million.
- And Cartoon Network is also thinking creatively – something I think they are generally pretty good at. This time they are debuting a new micro-network that will only be available on smartphones and tablets!
