In these days of wars and rumors of wars, haven't you ever dreamed of a place where there was peace and security, where living was not a struggle but a lasting delight?
--- Lost Horizon, directed by Frank Capra, 1937
On video: Weiner, Eric. (2012, August 26). The Geography of Bliss - Keynote, A HAPPINESS 2012 Conference - Seattle. YouTube. 43:48 minutes (Sound improves when Mr. Weiner takes the podium. No PowerPoint! You can just listen!)
Some of the questions Weiner asks: Does "place" still matter in a digital age? Does "landscape" go in and out of style? What role does "culture (i.e. national culture) play? Is happiness an expectation?
