Firstly hats off to Marc Gunther and the organizers of the Fortune Magazine Green Brainstorm. It was certainly one of the best of the more than 20 events I've been to this year, packed with great people and great information.

Given the fast-paced nature of the three days, it was next to impossible to write about everything that transpired. So for those of you who didn't follow my tweets, I thought this would be the best way to provide a recap.

So here is the blow-by-blow in reverse chronological order. You can also search on Twitter for the #FortuneGreen and get all the posts from the many bloggers, tweeters, and CEO's present at the event.
