So the post below made me think of the guy who introduced me to why it is important to understand this whole web thing – Jeff Fergurson from wunderground.org. When I met Jeff it was on a porch in Ypsilanti, Michigan at friend’s house named Mike Foster, had to be 1997 or 98 and he look like he did below, bottom right:
All I remember was the absolute kindness of the guy, his willingness to chat about his work gig and his passion for his kids. This was a guy I wanted to emulate. I was very happy when I was first able to pay him money for weather on a portal I was the PM on, we scrapped the portal and I lost touch when I left Ann Arbor in 2001 and moved my life. So I decided to look him up with a universal search query and sure enough – same cool cat.
only gray… I can’t talk I have some cool gray hair when I grow a beard. I’ve linked them in through my blog for appreciation of his insights and consistent efforts towards [tag]sustainable agriculture[/tag].
NOTE: [tag]Ann Arbor[/tag] was green before [tag]carbon credits[/tag] were cool.

@edwardvielmetti thanks for comment. Its a small world after all http://tinyurl.com/27ehu3
Jeff’s office downtown is about 6 blocks from mine near the Farmer’s Market.
I remember using the Weather Underground when it was still at SPRL at umich – you could use finger to get a current weather report.
(Just testing out a new twitter @a2weather to syndicate in their Ann Arbor wx RSS – it would be awesome to have Twitter + Weather Underground going.)
Farmer’s Market, hot cider and Zingerman’s on a perfect Autumn saturday is rarely matched.
I ran out after like my first conversation with Jeff and bought my first slew of domain names.
