There's a bear at the door...

And it's GreenBuild 2006 in Denver!

The morning kicked off with a fiery pep-talk from Rick Fedrizzi, the president and CEO of the US Green Building Council. He introduced several new initiatives--schools, communities, education--that we will hopefully be reporting on in the near future. He was also joined by Phil Bernstein from AutoDesk, who announced a major commitment to developing more performance-based tools for architects and designers. Cool stuff.

The keynote was William McDonough, who gave a soft-spoken challenge to the audience to do better. More on that later.

We'll be posting throughout the day, so check back. And tonight's the big party at Daniel Libeskind's new art museum, so we'll have plenty of pics tomorrow.
