Paths cross for a reason. People use that statement in multiple contexts. For me, synchronicity is an everyday compulsion. I ran into blank at the Sentient Bean, which connected me to blank. So-and-so posted a great website at the same moment I happened to jump online which lead me to blank. There was only one gluten free brownie left at Gallery Espresso, that means that I must eat it.
Anywho, I ran across Bill Strickland’s visionary programs in a Historic Preservation class that I took in the Spring of this year. Then, bam, I remembered his talk and how completely relevant his work is to my project. And another inspirational visionary is something I am needing RIGHT NOW. Sooo once again, I reach to Ted Talks for a best practice of online media exchange. Warning: he will move you and possibly pull a tear out of your eye, which is not a bad thing.

A little bit of Bill’s bio from Ted.com: While moonlighting as an airline pilot, Strickland founded Manchester Bidwell, a world-class institute in his native Pittsburgh devoted to vocational instruction in partnership with big business — and, almost incidentally, home to a Grammy-winning record label and a world-class jazz performance series.
