Years ago… oh damn it’s already 10 years ago (click Ten Minutes With), I had an idea that I wanted to “interview” people who are smart, have cool ideas, are people I know (or are friends of friends) that my other friends should get to know. One part share ideas and one part introduce friends to friends.
Think hanging out at a coffee shop with a friend and being able to record the conversation. Because so many times I have walked away from such a conversation and thought, damn… I wish I had written “that thing” down.
I mentioned this to Casey Allen a couple of months ago and he said:
Great, when are you going to start doing this?
A couple of weeks went by and he asked again. And then a couple of weeks ago he asked again.
I was getting annoyed with him but angry with me for not doing it.
So I asked Casey if he would be willing to be the first one and he said yes.
