PEOPLE TO WATCH IN 2007
Each year we choose a group of People To Watch who embody the spirit of the creative community. They are individuals who we have come to know and respect for a combination of talent, leadership, success, insight, business savvy, community service and newsworthiness. Choosing is a subjective process — this field is deep with special people doing special things — and we admit our limitations up front. Nevertheless, we believe that after you read this special report you will agree that, once again, we've done pretty darn well. Meanwhile, we look forward to our 44th year and to hearing from and getting to know and celebrate many, many more of you.
The recycled paper debate is no longer the end of the environmental conversation but rather only the beginning. The concept of environmental responsibility has broadened out to embrace issues of sustainability writ large, energy consumption and the impact of manufacturing, forest stewardship and natural resource regeneration, chain of custody and product life cycle usefulness, and finding green printers and other green vendors. The big picture — the total environmental and social consequences of making, buying, specifying, delivering, printing, converting, using and reusing paper — is coming into focus.
