Marketing maven, strategist, visionary, and best-selling author Seth Godin spent a day at Pantages Theater in Minneapolis last Thursday, providing much food for thought among not only the attending crowd, but those following the dialogue on Twitter too.

The sushi and cupcake lunch Seth selected, and that we enjoyed, on the roof of neighboring Seven, was pretty nice too.

Days before his appearance in Minneapolis, Seth had blogged about how he was moving on since Linchpin, his life’s work, would be his final book published in the traditional way.

Spending the entire day in the third row, on the aisle, at Pantages, I found Seth to be engaging, insightul, charming, witty, gentle, real, and quite humble. Well worth the price of admission.

If you weren’t able to make it, or if you didn’t take notes, this Twitter stream will probably do the job: #SethGodinMPLS.

By the way, here is what Seth had to say about the Minneapolis airport just today: Don’t forget about color.
