Aero-TV At AOPA Expo 2008: From Boyer To Fuller
It was somewhat bittersweet to all concerned... the thought that Phil Boyer was presiding over his last AOPA Expo as the President of the world's largest pilot's organization.
And what an Expo it was! The combination of seasonably pleasant weather, new product announcements -- and, most importantly, Phil's looming retirement -- drew 9,500 members and attendees, according to the pilot advocacy organization. That's far from the record 12,973 members and others who attended AOPA's last West Coast event, the 2006 Expo in Palm Springs... but given current anxieties about a looming recession, it's a rather impressive number nonetheless.
There's no denying when most pilots think about the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association... they think of Phil Boyer, the man who has helmed the pilot advocacy organization for the last 18 years. Alas, Phil's time at AOPA headquarters in Frederick, Maryland is nearing its end... and on Saturday, incoming president Craig Fuller was formally introduced to AOPA members, and the media...
Boyer introduced AOPA President-elect Craig Fuller, who graciously said that the opportunity "to take my professional passions, and now put those to work on behalf of something that's been a part of my life for 40 years, general aviation, is frankly a blessing beyond anything I could imagine.
"It's been a wonderful few weeks during this transition, it's been great to be here," Fuller said.
"Thanks to you, as members, for the support you have given the organization, for the personal support you have given me in this last week, and for the chance to work with you over the course of the years ahead in making sure aviation is as exciting looking forward as it has been for all of us in the past."
Following its usual biennial rotation, the 2009 Expo will take place November 5 through 7 in Tampa, FL, before returning to the western US the following year. Aero-TV looks forward to seeing you there.

It was a big week in social media with news that Facebook and MySpace will allow their platforms to be integrated into other web sites.
While there is excitement about spreading social media outside of their destination sites, there is growing evidence that major advertisers are not comfortable with placing ads on these networks. Caroline McCarthy, the lead social media reporter at CNET News****, reported on Wednesday that eMarketer had downgraded again its projections for advertising on social media.
The big interactive advertising Razorfish has new plans and a patent application to measure the effect of advertising in social media.
To understand the evolving business of social media, I interviewed Caroline earlier this week. This is the first of several interviews Kelsey and I did at the Mogulus studio in SoHo. Special thanks to the Mogulus crew for being such gracious hosts.
Update, 12/13: Here is a story in The New York Times about the problems of advertising and social media.

This review is in reference to our order JGH244xxx with Drug Delivery. The great experience started when we placed our order though your access number here in Australia and was answered by your very professional staff. The order was handled very promptly and even though at times there would be technical difficulties in processing my order the staff are very gracious and very apologetic. I was being continually reassured that everything will be successfully processed. I am thankful on behalf of my family that the processing was very quick, in fact it was only 12 days compared to the usual 22 days delivery. All I can say is keep up the good work and kudos to all your staff for a job well done. Thank you.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to bring glad tidings to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives
and recovery of sight to the blind,
to let the oppressed go free,
and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord.
Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing. And all spoke highly of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his mouth.
Every one of us is the poor, the blind and the oppressed to be set free by the Gospel of Christ from our sins and the tyranny and darkness of atheistic materialism.

This review is in reference to our order JGH254395, GEFITINIB tablets 250mg of 30 tablets, and we placed our order through live chat. It was Laura who took our order. She was very accommodating and very gracious; we didn’t encounter any problems while ordering through live chat, there was a little delay though in the shipment. Actually the quality of the drug we have received, although it is generic mediation but its quality is very good and very similar to the branded one. The good thing about this order is that we did find a lower and lesser price for this similar tablet to other online pharmacy but Drug Delivery was able to price match it so yes we did get a lower price for this one and indeed Drug Delivery did give their 100% guarantee on the price match. So thank you Drug Delivery and more power.

A tribute to Michelle Kwan, a great skater and gracious person. While she fell short of her quest to win Olympic Gold in 1998, 2002 and 2006,(withdrew) Michelle remains the most decorated US skater and one of the most loved. She is a reminder that a true winner is determined not by medals or accomplishments, but by character. Song is by Heather Headley.
