Hey Jason,

Nice to see the shout-out to Land8 on your Landscape Urbanism blog. I'm in a class with Charles Waldheim right now and the weekly landscape urbanism chats are a really exciting prospect into where the field is headed.

Also, tell Alex I say hi! She's a classmate of mine from Penn State.

Hey, congrats on the LAM write-up! I haven't read the article yet but saw that you were one of the bloggers featured - that's excellent. Has it increased your traffic much? Hope all's well with you.

Hi Jason,

I unfortunately missed the lecture both you and Brett Mulligan gave at asla oregon in early April. Any chance you guys will be speaking again in Portland this summer?

And of course, excellent blog, sir—keep on keepin' on.
