Do you know of anyone else who has …

I realize the question you’ll read below is somewhat silly, since it would be hard to find anyone like you either if you put together a long, specific list about yourself and asked if people knew anyone else who had the same list as you. But weirdly, I hope you’ll see that posing the question as I have below seems to focus attention better than just listing what I’ve created and done. And I hope you’ll see that perhaps the diverse parts of what I’ve created and integrated might add up to more than the sum of the parts, and are perhaps significant and worth your further explorations.

In this question, I’m referring to my proximity thinking framework and my projects related to it, introduced on the home page of

Thank you!
