Making it Happen: 99% Conference

I'm excited that this year I am once again able to attend the 99% Conference put on by the fine folks at Behance and Cool Hunting. The premise of the conference is based on the famous quote by Thomas Edison, “Genius is one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.” The conference focuses on the fact that having a great idea is not enough, you need to actually make those good ideas happen; you need to take action.  This year's speakers include innovator extraordinaire,  Yves Béhar, Beth Comstock (SVP & Chief Marketing Officer of GE), Jared Cohen (Google Ideas), Diego Rodriguez (IDEO), and a number of other inspiring people.  The conference is sold out but don't let that stop you from spending some time on the 99% site.
