Me In My Actual Day Job

Given that this blog is a net financial loss to me, I do other things to put food on the table.  My actual day job, as some of you know, is running a company that privately operates public recreation areas.  I presented at a conference on new ideas for public recreation a couple weeks back in Washington.  This was my presentation:

All the presentations are grouped here.


  1. Joe Mama:


  2. EDM:

    That was a great presentation.

  3. Thruppennybit:

    Great work Warren

  4. ColoComment:

    Kept my attention, start to finish! The "before" and "after" photos were very effective.

    That's a pretty creative (and balanced) contract. How long did the negotiations take & how hard was it to convince the gov't that it could "win" by releasing partial control to an outside party?

    Very cool. The problem solved by modular buildings isn't something I'd ever considered. I'm afraid, though, that some of the agencies could find the presentation a bit threatening. A clean, modern, well-run campground without any budget required or agency personnel on staff!? Wonderful for the public. But not so much for those running the agency (although I suppose the TVA might be different, since recreation is not their focus).
