Boulder’s a small town, that makes outsized ripples. Tech. Natural Products foods and beverages. Poetry. Buddhism. Yoga. Cycling. Running. Science. Health. And, then, Boulder’s Louis Psihoyos & Friends took their The Cove won Best Documentary at the Oscars. And then Jeff Orlowski (who I first met when at SXSW, ironically, where I was speaking on a panel about mindful media and he was taking home yet another award for Chasing Ice).

I got the heads up on Jeff’s latest media coupe via Troy, via Facebook:

“So proud of my friend…Jeff for his feature in today’s New York Times. His Sundance award-winning documentary, Chasing Ice, premieres in NYC and Toronto Friday, and elsewhere next week. I’ll be at the Boston premiere on 11/16.”

  1. Looks like a phenomenal film! Bill Maher interviewed photographer James Balog (Director of Extreme Ice Survey and photographer for the film). Can't wait to see it.
