Full Disclosure: I really do watch Project Runway (with my wife). I have zero fashion sense and have no clue what’s in or out. My fashion sense resolves around not making my wife look bad. For me, this show is about how motivated creative people can rapidly create great things.
Project Runway is one of those shows that you have to find. It used to be on Bravo, but now it’s on Lifetime.

Yet, this show has a lot to teach blogger’s about the process of creating.
Hank Wasiak (@hankwasiak) is an advertising leader with a distinguished resume “a-mile-long” and I seriously enjoyed the talk he gave at the 140 conference Tuesday.

” …an online tool for real-time communcation and collaboration. A wave can be both a conversation and a document where people can discuss and work together using richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps and more.”
Early in the talk, Greg Dalesandre, Product Manager for Google Wave mentioned that, “Google Wave and Twitter are cousins if you will.”
