I went to Todd Loewenstein's house last Sunday (july 27 2008) and had BBQ tri-tip, sausage, chicken, as well as good beer, ice cream, oreo cheesecake, and chips. There, I met his friend Curtis, and spoke to Drew, who's a teacher/administrator at Inglewood School District. Drew said he had a good idea on how to fix the educational system and I look forward to that conversation.
Thanks for the great food Todd!
Todd runs arcostream.com, and I'm doing some work there.
