Check out Ken Schles’ FOAM magazine write-up on 10×10. Thanks Ken. This is one of the best overviews of the project. Very honest and accurate. Schles shows our strengths and our areas for growth. We love that 10×10 is an ever-expanding and growing entity. The project was founded on the principle that there would always be more to learn.
