The Independent Oil and Gas Association has used today's New York Wine, Beer and Spirits Summit to press the Cuomo administration for an energy industry summit. Brad Gill, Executive Director of IOGA wrote to the governor:

On behalf of the more than 400 members of the Independent Oil & Gas Association of New York, as well as the thousands of professionals who work in and with our industry, we ask you to convene a natural gas and oil development summit. I believe that a summit to hear ideas from industry leaders, large natural gas users and other stakeholders will help ensure that the natural gas industry continues to grow and create jobs in New York.

From toilet paper to soda pop, more and more companies are testing whether "doing good" can be good for the bottom line.

The idea behind corporate social responsibility, or CSR, is that consumers reward good corporate citizens - that connecting with someone's values is the best way to create a loyal customer.

Ben & Jerry's has long been on the leading edge of the CSR movement.

Now a Ben & Jerry's alum wants to spread that message to Rochester and beyond.

We've all been there: Working from home can be a challenge.

"You find a million things to do besides work at that point," says Dave Moffitt, founder of Coworking Rochester. "You're going, 'Hey, you know what? I'm gonna do the laundry, feed the cats, check Facebook and Twitter...' "

The list goes on and on.

So after years of telecommuting as the creative director of his family-run marketing company, Moffitt decided to do something about it.

That something became the communal workspace known as Coworking Rochester.
