What I've always loved about the Internet is how it can turn random encounters with strangers into meaningful friendships. My first taste of this was on Flickr. The universe kept leading me to some of the coolest and most interesting people who soon became dear "real life" friends. And the oddest part to me was how, when we finally met up in real life…it wasn't weird. No awkward pauses. No lulls. It's like we've been friends since the dawn of time. On Friday, the universe and the internet worked its magic again when @thejeffnorton ---someone who I've crossed paths with via tweets and 'grams many moons ago---and I met up for lunch in Westwood Village. Jeff couldn't have been nicer and I had a blast talking about his new book, #KeepingTheBeat, the creative process, all things kids entertainment & our mutual love of "Ferris Bueller!" Thank you Jeff for a great afternoon of conversation and laughs---and, until next time, safe travels back to London. And hey, Internet---thank you!
