We Like Joining the Conversation

One of the more intriguing and rewarding aspects of our recent entry into the legal blogging and social media arena has been the rapid development of conversations and connections with interesting people.  Two of these friendships have led to cross-posts on a pair of our friend's blogs.

We have been friendly with Chris Hill at Construction Law Musings for some time before the launch of our blog.  Not only has Chris been a tremendous source of information, support, and helpful advice during our first fledgling steps, but we have enjoyed an extended dialogue on various topics, blog posts, and twitter.  Chris invited us to guest post at Construction Law Musings and you can see that post today, Yes, Virginia, Contract Terms Do Matter: Financing Term Offers Owner an Escape Hatch.

The "Six Degrees of Separation" style of internet interrelationships has led from Chris to dialogue with the Build2Sustain group.  The Build2Sustain blog in particular is home to some intriguing and important discussions regarding the development process.  Those discussions, on both the blog and twitter, have in turn led to us getting to know Yahya Henry.  Yahya has extensive development and real estate experience and brings not only a passion for sustainability, but a solid understanding of the business end of the equation.

Amongst many interests and pursuits, Yayha is currently Director of Business Development for The Aribra Group, LLC.  The Aribra Group is an online commuity promoting sustainable development.  Yayha invited us to join the conversation at The Aribra Group and recently reprinted one of our LEED related posts, LEEDing to Unintended Consequences - The Ghost of LEED Future.

We appreciate the chance to reach out and extend our dialogue and look forward to such discussions in the future.  For those interested in more rapid dialogue, you can follow us all on Twitter: Timothy R. Hughes can be found @vaconstruction, Chris Hill can be found @constructionlaw, and Yayha Henry can be found @yahyahenry.
