Old world to new

How things can change in a week.

Last week I was on a mountainside in Austria, photographing cows and learning about how local farmers are keeping history and tradition alive in the next generation.

Today I’m about as far from tradition and that Old World mountainside as I can get – in the glitz and glam of that New World capital of excess, Las Vegas, attending a conference on blogging and new media.

This isn’t directly related to food or farming but I’m hoping it’ll help me figure out how to blog about those topics more effectively and build more bridges between those who eat food and those who grow it.

I have been learning a lot about Twitter and the power of its capabilities to spread the word and connect people – you can follow my fledgling attempts at tweeting on my Twitter feed here: http://twitter.com/lilianschaer.
