Link to a web story about my background - http://cforjustice.org/2008/10/14/the-river-and-ron-hall/ In August, I was Google's guest in Boulder for a 2 day conference. I was one of 20 "Super" modelers flown in from around the world (Great Britain, Germany, Belgium, Poland, Spain, Argentina , Brazil, Canada) to give Google's SketchUp software people feedback on their product. Note: I have several "collections" of buildings , but they chose to showcase Cheney . Was quite an honor and alot of fun. Made new friends from around the world and at Google. http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/cldetails?mid=14ea1f3f9463648543d...
