In early 2009, Michelle Obama started working to get us re-focused on healthy eating. She brought back the White House garden with the goal of bringing homegrown food into the White House. This kind of garden was a dream of California chef Alice Waters.
Alice a leader in the movement to use locally grown organic foods.
She had discussed her idea for a White House garden with Mrs.Obama and she organized a Washington dinner before President Barack Obama’s inauguration that served foods bought from local producers at an area farmer’s market. Mrs. Obama and Ms. Waters made the headlines again yesterday.
We had a chance to meet with Alice Waters in her kitchen where we held a live WebEx with her in Berkeley! It was a terrific discussion and she even shared a quick recipe with us.

This week in Partner Update, Andrew and I cover a variety of topics, from ways to help partners differentiate to huge WebEx deals to B2B social media tips. And a lot more.
This time around, we also test out QR codes, a new way for you to get more information about the topics we cover. QR, short for quick response, is a barcode that you’ll see along with the URLs in our videos. To take advantage of the codes, simply download a QR code reader for your mobile phone (I used i-nigma for the iPhone).
When you see the QR code box appear on the bottom-right side of the video, simply open the app and snap the image using your reader. The reader will then automatically take you to a specified site or resource. We hope you like this new feature. Let us know what you think.
Now, let’s get to some news…
And, if you’re not a fan of QR codes, no problem. Keep reading for a text summary with links and timestamps so you can follow along with what we covered in this newscast.
