As odd as it may seem, Jason and I didn’t really meet and become friends until last year.  Odd, because he’s an online rockstar.  He blogs, he tweets, he does a little bit of everything.  Jason and I serve on the ACPA Presidential Task Force on Social and Digital Technology.  I’m also immensely pleased to have him joining the ACPA Governing Board with me come March.  Give him follow.  He’s friendly, gracious and welcoming.
