Wine Tasting with Philippe Newlin, Playing the Cello with Hans Jensen, and Daniel Coyle on Practicing at PopTech 2009
This crisp afternoon, six different Wednesday PopTech 2009: America Reimagined sessions took place around Camden and surrounding areas.
Under the exposed beams of High Mountain Hall, Philippe Newlin, Wine ‘Professor’ at both Columbia and Yale universities, as well as former Tasting Director of Wine and Spirits magazine showed PopTechers the best American wines they had never heard of (learn the Italian designation for a superior wine in this video):
Learn how to play a little cello with Master Teacher Hans Jensen:

Other Wednesday sessions included:
a social innovation design panel with Sheila Kennedy, William Drenttel, Kevin McSpadden, John Bielenberg, and PopTech Fellow Emily Pilloton,
a new edge of conservation panel with Katy Payne, Healy Hamilton, and PopTech Fellow Paula Kahumbu,
a storytelling presentation session with the Duarte design team,
and a workshop about building a wooden boat using traditional methods at the Atlantic Challenge maritime school with Eric Stockinger.
