The MIT Reunion Committee asked me talk about my bicycle trip at a TIM Talk (TIM = MIT backwards. Same Same but different from TED Talk. Get it?) I took a rather math/physics angle on my trip for the fifteen minutes, which worked well for that crowd. You can decide how it appeals to you.
MIT TIM Talk – 6/9/17 – How Will We Live Tomorrow?
Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA.
My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition.
During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question.
Thank you for visiting.

Just viewed your MIT Reunion presentation, and I’ll be thinking about it a lot! I’m not sure if I will be able to meet one new person every day, but it’s a worthwhile goal!
I forwarded it to all my family!
One new person every day could be tough in Billings. Not as many causal peope coming and going as we have here in Cambridge. Hope all is well with you and your family, and you have a great summer.
I met a guy in Panama city beach that said he met you and you was putting him in your book. Said he met you coming out of key West. You gave him granola and wheat bars . He said his name was Sidney. I’m actually sitting on the beach with him now. I’m a photographer here in Panama. He said I should get a hold of you. Not exactly sure why lol but he seems like a cool guy.
Yes, I met Sidney on the road, though I don’t recall telling him I’d put him in my book – I haven’t even written a book yet! We met on the highway between Appalachicola and Tallahassee. Nice guy.
