Graphic Artist Brings Creative Visuals to Meeting of the Minds 2012
Graphic artist Leah Silverman was on hand last week in San Francisco for Meeting of the Minds 2012. She lent her talents to the breakout session, Smart Cities of Tomorrow – Integrated Operations across Service Areas to Meet the Needs of Citizens, a discussion led by IBM’s Christian Clauss.
