Doors Open Denver...A Success!
Friday, 23 April 2010 21:52

JohnstonWells opened its Rocky Mountain Seed Company building headquarters to more than 100 visitors during the annual Doors Open Denver tours this past Saturday.

It was JohnstonWells’ first year participating in Doors Open Denver, the local annual celebration of Denver's most treasured architectural gems, which was hosted by the Denver Office of Cultural Affairs and the Denver Architectural Foundation.

This year's theme, "Denver Redo: Buildings with a Second Life” was very fitting for the Rocky Mountain Seed Company, as JohnstonWells’ transformation of the 132-year-old building has given a completely new purpose to what was home to a local seed company for 87 years. Many of the visitors who toured the Rocky Mountain Seed Company were just as excited to see the whimsical folk art collection that decorates JohnstonWells’ offices, as they were about the renovation of the historic building.

Wednesday, 21 April 2010 20:37

More than 40 judges, attorneys and court advocates for youth came together for a presentation by JohnstonWells’ Diane Amdur and Breanna Deidel, offering insight into the world of social networking and teens.

Attendees learned more about five of the major social media applications that this key audience is utilizing, as well as the potential risks and topical issues surrounding these online communities.

Some of the information shared included:

  • Teens are not accessing applications like Twitter nearly as much as MySpace and Facebook.
  • “Hanging out” often means chatting on Facebook and/or MySpace.
  • In the case of cyberbullying, teen victims have a lack of escape from cruel comments in cyberspace due to advances in technology.
  • Despite warnings and safety tips, teens are still over sharing on social networking sites.

Attendees not only earned CLE credits, they walked away with a better understanding of teens and social networking.
