"Have just made it up as well. But there was the hooper ism. There was a big, you know, big Kappa. And so Jim Alton asked him if he could come by and chat. And I said, oh, I'd love to be a fly on the wall on that. And then Tim said he was going to be having dinner with this guy that has great wines. Like, oh, we'll say hi, and then he said that Neal Stephen was going for dinner. And I said, I'll drive you down. So then I became Tim technical assistant in that meeting with Jim and boy, that was. Entertaining meeting of, you know, Jim talking about industrial soft. Jim Olson talking about industrial software and Tim O'Reilly talking about open-source at the same time. So as all of you know, Microsoft was very anti open-source. And by the time I got there, which was 2009, Microsoft was embracing open-source. I remember sitting in a partner meeting at Microsoft and Steve bomber calls me out about how their Microsoft was being open. So yeah, we just hired dick Hart, you know, he's a big leader in open-source and identity and openness and everything, right? And so that was shifting inside the company by that point in time. Around how Microsoft was trying to get them. Really, really, they didn't really understand the Internet or the web or things like that, but they were trying to realize that they needed to interact and work with other people to some degree. And the reason we got involved in OAuth, we worked on OAuth was just OAuth one was just too hard to implement for people. And so myself and Allen Tom from Yahoo and I'm trying to remember who it was from Google to it. Do you remember who it was that I worked with at Google? It was a Brian. Yeah, I think it was Brian. And so both Allen and Brian had been deep insecurity. They had well worn paths of all the stupid things that could happen and all the mistakes that we made. And really what we did is what was Microsoft, what was the common pattern between the homegrown solutions that all the companies had and added a couple of other features, one of the key ones was sort of the refresh token and the idea of scopes. That was the basis for what eventually became OAuth 2. There were some other parts of your question, though, Chris. Well, no, actually, that's helpful because one of the things that I think is germane about this conversation and again, in this between kind of open and closed and now we're in the web three moment where, you know, there are a lot of ideas that are kind of being reintroduced and reinvented and recreated, oftentimes sometimes worse than what we were doing back then. I think it's worthwhile to understand a little bit about the history, at least as I remember, of OAuth one and one, and what we were trying to solve for back then. And just to provide a little color, OAuth one was designed to work in the WordPress blogs, which were often hosted in shared hosting environments, in which case they were kind of insecure. And so part of the OAuth one O protocol with Aaron lahav hammer, who was the author and curator of that spec. Was she essentially recreate or reinvent SSL? The secure socket layer that keeps most of the Internet secure today. And we did that because of the nature of self hosted WordPress. And the diesel project was trying to make it possible for individuals who are hosting their own blogs to be able to do a peer to peer connection and to create the peer to peer, like social web. And so what it turned out to be is that it was just far too hard to get normal website operators to understand crypto. And so fast forward to OAuth 2, and it was like, well, let's just use SSL that already exists. It's already built in the browser. And adopt this new format in Tokyo to make it much, much simpler. So I think that evolution is important. And I'm not a developer, so I can't speak to some of the nuanced in that. But I think it would be useful for you guys to talk a little bit about those tensions and about the tradeoffs that we had to make to drive more adoption because I think OAuth has been a resounding success. I would say as far as standards go. Everybody uses it. I mean, the fact that it is so much of a force today and it continues to be maintained and built into most APIs, I think, is a testament to the work that was done back then by a lot of you guys. So we really think about it. What can we take away from that? It's important to remember too, the other context that led to the thing that web two is honestly best known for, and that led to OAuth was people wanted to do mashups, right? They wanted to take information. And use it in another place. They wanted to create new experiences, especially now that for the first time they were actually creating data. Remember the web used to just be a bunch of static web pages, but people started being able to actually upload information about themselves and once they've done that, they would say, oh, I want to see my restaurant reviews on a Google map or I want to see they want to bring these things together. And without APIs, the only way they could do that was ask you for your username and password on that other service. And then scrape the information out. And that's how all these words angry pattern. But Facebook grew by asking all their users for their Google username and password. And then importing their address book or methods like that. And that was just the best you could do. And of course, if that is such an important point. And I think a lot of people try to build new social networks today, and they're like, oh, I'll just build a new social network. And it'll be better. In some feature way. But actually, it was the way in which Facebook did hack to get your network, no matter where it was. And also I was going to say, wasn't that inspired by a plaxo unless I'm remembering incorrectly? There's a Sean Parker, part of this is Harley Shawn went to Facebook because he has sort of understood this bootstrapping problem. Exactly..

"Oh, wow, there was a lot in that question, Chris. I mean, just on the patent thing, that's actually why I ended up leaving Microsoft as I had patent portfolio that I built up defensively and Microsoft had looked at buying skip and decided they would just hire me and pay me lots of money. But part of my employment contract was that if I knowingly let them infringe on any patents, I'd have to grant them a license. And I didn't want to give them to them free, right? You can't just, if you want, I'm pay for them. And so I think four weeks into my job, my manager asked me to write a white paper and I said, well, that might print on some of my patents. This is what do you mean in my franchise? What do you mean? What do you mean that? I said what my lawyers were supposed to say so that was annoyingly doing that. And so I got banned working with my group and then there was a lot to work on open stuff, which was hilarious in some ways that Microsoft was paying me, but the only things I could work on were things where there was no IP. So I could go and work on a platform became a lot too and JSON web token. And maybe you can speak to some of the competitive energies in nature of what was going on back then. Because for me, coming up, Microsoft was like my sworn nemesis. It was the evil empire. It was the thing that wanted to shut down the web. And was averse in so many ways to open this. And I mean, it might be valuable to sort of parse out some of what open means and what effective openness means because I would say both Zuckerberg has followed the Microsoft team model with openness. To be the platform that all other applications and platforms live upon. And ironically, they're sort of in this place where they are, I guess, dependent upon other platforms, whether it's Apple or Google, et cetera. And so they kind of find themselves squeezed, which is of course why the metaverse is so important to them. But maybe you can take us back again to how interoperability and formats and technologies was it felt like a very different kind of conversation back then in this world. And I feel like you've been in this, I guess, for so long, maybe you can help us to think about the difference between back then and now. Well, a good thing to do would be to wind back a little bit further in time. I remember this time at skip Tim O'Reilly was an investor in my board. We had a board meeting in Vancouver. And he had a meeting following that down in Seattle with Jim Olson, who was running Windows at the time, because there was this big hooper's, they were battling around open-source Microsoft. Probably. I might.

"Oklahoma state House approves bill to make abortion illegal by Sean Murphy, Associated Press, Oklahoma City. The Oklahoma House gave final legislative approval on Tuesday to a bill that would make performing an abortion a felony, punishable by up to ten years in prison, with little discussion, and no debate, the Republican controlled House voted 70 to 14 to send the bill to Republican governor Kevin stitt, who has previously said he'd sign any anti abortion bill that comes to his desk. The bill is one of several anti abortion measures still alive in Oklahoma's legislature this year. Part of a trend of GOP led states passing aggressive anti abortion legislation as the conservative U.S. Supreme Court is considering ratcheting back abortion rights that have been in place for nearly 50 years. The Oklahoma Bill, which passed the Senate last year, makes an exception only for an abortion performed to save the life of the mother, said GOP state representative Jim Olson, a Roland, who sponsored the bill, under the bill, a person convicted of performing an abortion, would face up to ten years in prison, and a $100,000 fine. The penalties are for the doctor, not for the woman, Olsen said. Similar anti abortion bills approved by the Oklahoma legislature, and in other conservative states in recent years have been stopped by the courts as unconstitutional, but anti abortion lawmakers have been buoyed by the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to allow new Texas abortion restrictions to remain in place. The new Texas law, the most restrictive anti abortion law in the U.S. and decades, leaves enforcement up to private citizens who are entitled to collect what critics call a bounty of $10,000 if they bring a successful lawsuit against a provider or anyone who helps a patient obtain an abortion. Several states, including Oklahoma, are pursuing similar legislation this year. The Oklahoma bill's passage came on the same day as more than 100 people attended a bans off Oklahoma rally outside the capital and support of abortion rights. These legislators have continued their relentless attacks on our freedoms, said Emily Wales, interim president, and CEO of Planned Parenthood, great plains, votes. These restrictions are not about improving the safety of the work that we do. They are about shaming and stigmatizing people who need and deserve abortion access. Whales said Planned Parenthood's abortion clinic in Oklahoma has seen an 800% increase in the number of women from Texas after that state passed its new anti abortion law last year. The Texas law bans abortion once cardiac activity is detected, usually around 6 weeks of pregnancy without exceptions in cases of rape or incest. Also Tuesday, the Oklahoma House adopted a resolution to recognize lives lost due to abortion, and urge citizens to fly flags at half staff on January 22nd.

Is it in spite of all of these places you're going into the things you're doing, you still come back and you go, nope. Well, that didn't serve me well at the FBI, but it served me just fine at the CIA. Well, we'll talk about that here. What pray transition phrase? Had you known then what you know now?

"Whether you live in an age to a community or you serve on an H o a board. You got a question? Well, I got somebody here. His name is attorney Jim Olson, and he is a Board certified H O Attorney. Yeah, Jim, congratulations on that. You know, I think the Florida Bar prohibits lawyers from using the description of an expert Unless you're board certified, then you can call yourself an expert. That's correct. So you are an expert to attorney and we would love to get your question. Jim. What would be the most kind of questions that you might expect to get from people whether they live in an H way community or where they served on a chalkboard just for the listeners out there? What's the typical questions that you get? Well, we get a lot of questions. You know when it comes to condominiums about budgeting and maintenance, and how do we pay for this? How do we pay for that? Uh, you know, the owners pay the bills ultimately. So It really becomes, uh, very strict dichotomy between owners and the boards. The boards have a strict fiduciary duty. They have to pass a budget. That budget has to fully fund reserves to fix things in the future. They don't really have a choice. But to do that, Unfortunately, too many boards will Fudge the numbers if you will, so that we don't have to have an increase this year. And next thing you know, 20 years have gone by and you don't have enough in your reserved and you can't fix the roofs. You can't fix the plumbing. Uh, it happens all the time, Unfortunately, And that's really one of the harder things we we deal with. Is trying to get boards too. Fully fund the budget, or at least propose it. And then the members have a right to come back and take a vote to say Okay, well, thanks for that fully funded budget, but we're going to only approve 80% of Well, that's fine. That's what the members vote is for. Uh, so it's really just trying to get the associations that operate correctly. And if you are buying a home or a condo in an H away if you were simply a buyer, what would be your advice to somebody as a buyer of a home or condo and H O a. As far as reviewing what the budget is, and what's reserve is Yeah. I mean, all of that information is available. It's official records. Uh, now's depending on the size of the condo. It's required to be online in many cases. Uh, but I would want to know the reserves. You know if if you move into a really nice gated community Well, that gate has more than one small effect, which is now your streets are private. They're not public who's going to maintain them? Who's going to pave them? Who's going to fix potholes? Who's going to fix curbs that break or get broken when the delivery vans drive over him? Uh, what about the roots, pushing up the sidewalks? All of those things come into play, and I would want to know Is there money in the budget is their money and reserves to pay for those kinds of repairs again.

Jim when it comes to giving notice to people who own properties within Hou A. Certainly you could mail something to this the street address of the property, but a lot of people rent them out. How do you know where to mail something to the actual owner? If they're not living at the property? Well, that's you know, in theory. The associations required to maintain as part of its official records. A roster of owners Okay, uh, so that puts a burden on the owner to report there. Address or where they get mail for But Yeah, we have that problem all the time. Typically, though, we saw that At least in what I do. We mail it to the address shown on the property appraiser. We mail it to the address. Of the property itself. Two occupants So that if it is a tenant occupied and they're failing to make, maintain or mow the grass, uh, that tenant gets a letter to, uh but ultimately it's the owner who's responsible and it's the owner who would get sued and it's the owner. Who would pay the association's attorney's fees if they are awarded by a court. Typical H O a community. Let's say his house is not condos, houses how often with the H two a mail them something, giving them notice about what the proposed budget is and giving an opportunity to vote on something.

Um, recently New on H o a board. And, um, primary question I called in was more about the enforcement. We've had lack of enforcement. I'm technically on the Architectural review board, and we just haven't really gotten much clarity about who should be taking responsibility for the enforcement of the covenants and the bylaws. How should that be separate from? Maybe the architectural review board? Yeah, Michael, one of the things that you know. Associations run in cycles where they go many years where they do enforced very strictly. And then you get boards who get very lax. And then you get new people like yourselves, and it seems like about a 10 year cycle. What you may want to consider doing is depending on the size of your association, of course. Uh, sending out a notice We call it a channel shipping letter. Channel Shipping was a case from several years ago that talked about prospective enforcement as long as you give notice. So things that you may not have been forced in the past. Uh, after this channel shipping letter, you'll be able to enforce them in the future and They won't have their normal defenses of selective enforcement and things like that. Jim, you've got me there. Chatto Shipping letter. Come on, Chapel chattels personal property right? It was chattel. Shipping is just the name of the case. Okay was Channel shipping versus I can't remember the other party, So Michael Michael's Architectural Review board historically has not been enforcing the rules of architectural review. But now they want to pick it up and start enforcing the rules so that you're saying that they can serve that now but not necessarily have to go back to the old ones that did not comply. Right, and it almost To a to an extent grandfather's things in okay, so that if I put up a fence, for instance, five years ago, 10 years ago, and the rules say no fences. Yeah, my friends can stay. But what this channel shipping letter also says is what stays is the fence, not the right to have a fence so that if hurricane brings it down Or a tree falls on it. Guess what? You've got to get rid of the fence and come into compliance. Uh, And that's what this channel shipping letter does is notify everyone that I cloak cloak. Willie referred to it as a new sheriff in town letter. Would that letter go out to all of the O A owners of the property? Okay, tell them. Hey, new new Sheriff in town. We're gonna start doing things by the book. You might say, right. Got it. Hey, Michael. Thank you for calling. We do much very much appreciate it. Hey, folks. My guest today is attorney Jim Olson.

"And call it Florida friendly landscaping, which is not okay. Uh so we, you know, sometimes there is no middle ground. Sometimes you can work around it. Uh, but that's what good mediators can do is is come up with creative solutions. Speaking of putting white rocks down, uh, I'm sure typical would say you can't raise farm animals And yet the city of Orlando and I believe the county is said Hey, to some degree people within the city and county limits can have chickens raise some chickens. Well, it does. If the city or the county has a rule that you can have chickens with that override an H O a rule that says no farm animals. It would not because your declaration as a contract between you and all your owners or your other owners that says you will or will not do certain things, but I can tell you I've had this debate before with a declaration that said no poultry. And the people argued It's not poultry, because if you look up the definition of poultry it's raised for its meat and its eggs. And you can't butcher chickens in the city of Orlando so that you know I have chickens at my house, but we can't eat their meat. We can eat their eggs. So she argued that it wasn't poultry. And then when it appeared that she might lose that argument, then it became well. We needed as reasonable accommodation because my child has down syndrome and they're very attached to their chickens. Are you finding that H o a. The covenants that they create? Are they now making including in there, sometimes for some of the residents to raise chickens? In their houses. I haven't seen any, but, uh you know, I'm sure they can probably should. Uh, but One of the things you have to do to raise chickens is take classes.

"In my very special guest today is my brother Jim Olson. Jim, Welcome to the show. Thanks for having me you've been a lawyer for God's just about as long as I have 40 years for me, so it's got to be 35 years for you, 35. We are still practicing and getting better. Just profession every day. That's why they call it practice. Yeah, so you have always been focused on Homeowner association work. In fact, you have a special what would you call it A degree and Work or I am board certified by the Florida bar. There are I don't know how many attorneys there are in Florida now. 40 45,000. There's 198 board, certified attorneys and condominium and planned development. So that's very special for you. So you are hoh attorney as a general rule your you and your firm. You're representing Hor organizations. You're not representing individuals who want to soother H away, for example, we used to, but, uh, we got some complaints for managers and Since the managers are the ones that hire us. We stopped doing that fair enough. I can understand that, Jim. I know that I'm always inviting people that they can email us our legal questions through our website. And that is Olson law group dot com and we're always happy to answer people's emails. And I get a lot of lot of emails from people with H o a questions and I always forward them on to you and your very good, very prompt and take a nice Time out of your day to answer those email questions for people. We do appreciate it. Those are coming from individuals who are for whatever reason upset whether H O A. And I think First thing you do is just number one confirmed. There's no conflict of interest for you to answer your email questions for him, But you do a great job of doing that for him. Yeah, I enjoy it. You know, it's it's nice to hear it from the other side. You know, as far as from owners and their issues because it certainly hits home with what we do for our clients and our associations. Well again, you're representing themselves. But you know that there's a lot of people who live in Hou communities that are very upset with Horus for Whatever reason, but I guess the most typical reason is when Hou a boards are not being consistent about enforcing the rules within the community, like you know, this guy. Has a basketball court and not do anything about it. Next thing you know that somebody else puts up a basketball hoop. And now they're complaining about it. You know what I'm saying? Yeah. Yeah. Selective enforcement is One of the Bains of my existence. Okay, selective enforcement. That is the term And so you know, if I said what are the most complaints I get from people via email would be about selective enforcement as a journal rule. What is the answer to somebody who lives in a community and they're they're upset about selective enforcement, meaning a choice coming after them, But they're not going after the guy down the street. Well, you know, I would do that litigation and that's one of the first things I ask of my clients and and the managers is to Find out is there Are there examples of selective enforcement because I can tell you. That's one of the judges things they will rule against you very hard and very fast if you are selectively enforce, Okay, Well, I'm guess I'm glad to hear that then. So generally when, when somebody went a resident of an H two. A community is upset with what the H O A is doing. And me. You may be. The standard responses will then run and you can get on a H o a board and help run things. But how often are people in the community? Actually suing the H O A For some kind of legal wrongdoing that they perceive I mean, from your end, you'd be defending the H O A. But how often do you end up in court where you're representing you and your firm or represented H away and individual homeowner and or their attorney or bringing lawsuits? Well, it happens. For the for the association's. That's why they have Dino insurance, you know, to cover To get insurance coverage for situations like that, Uh, happens all the time happens quite frankly, too often, um, mostly most of your better solutions or political rather than legal. You know, you don't like the board. Get rid of them. You have the ability to recall them. Get rid of them. Well, you're going to have to tell me what is D n o insurance stand for directors and officers liability. Okay, so when so when I just wanna understand it. You as an as an attorney in your firm they represent you represent H O a Organizations or groups or board members. I mean, how often are you actually in court? Over representing Horus. I mean, I guess I'm curious about that. And what kind of what? What kind of things make you end up in court Represented to association? Well these days the You know the Legislature does get very involved in changing the rules if you will. But they did about five or six years ago. Make a change and I think it's very good. As far as an H O is concerned, which is it requires pre suit mediation. So as a condition preceded to me filing suit. I have to offer mediation. And quite frankly, we go to mediations a lot. Helena does a lot of mediations for other firms who do this. And quite frankly, I'll take anything to mediation and chances are very good that you're going to settle. If you settle it avoids litigation if they don't go To mediation. They're not entitled to get attorney's fees even if they win the case, and that's Are you talking about suits or complaints that the H O A has against the homeowners are homeowners against the association? No sits by the association against Homeowners. So if somebody is not painting their house or Taking care of their property. Whatever. I've got to take it to mediation first. Okay, so I'm just curious. How would that process starts so well, Let's let's let's run through some things that a somebody live in HR community typically might violate so, for example. They? They're not painting their house or they painted their house. Wrong. Colour are they're not maintaining their yard will be some other reasons that an H away may notify a resident that they are violating the H way rules. Where a lot of times it just comes making changes without approval. You know, most of these koalas have an architectural approval process, Okay? So if I want to change the color of my house, I have to get it approved. Uh, inevitably, it's always the first house in the first corner of the neighborhood that paints their house. Hot pink or tennis ball yellow without approval. And the association hates it because it's right in the front where everybody sees it. So we would take that to mediation, or we would certainly offer the mediation as per the statute. And if they don't agree to go, they can't recover Attorney's fees and I can't tell you how many times I've filed suits. And they run screaming to their attorney. I want to fight this. I want to fight this. I want to fight this and write in paragraphs seven and says they didn't do mediation so they can't get attorney's fees. The attorney calls me up. We settle it in five minutes and we get our relief. So typical violations are people that are not conforming or getting permission for the architectural review board before they do things like paint their house or put up a fence, for example, or just failing general failure to maintain okay. And so then, if if the H O A board has has a problem with that first I gave my notice opportunity to go to a mediation. And who would be the mediator in that situation? Uh, the statute actually requires in our letter that we put in a choice of mediators, So we have As with other firms that put Helena Malco on art on their letters. We put them on ours. So we do a lot of mediations with those people or the homeowner can choose another mediator if they choose to do so. And are you one of the guys from the lawyers? When the lawyers that shows up and does that mediation on being on behalf of the H O? A? Yes, And you know if you got somebody that's just flat out, has painted her house. Without getting architectural review permission first, you know, where is the middle ground as C either you can, or you cannot. I mean you how do you settle something like that? If they paint their houses. Weird color. You're speaking of? Yeah, I mean, I've had, you know, some. Sometimes there is no middle ground we have when it comes to house colors, or I've had people dig up their entire yards and throw down white..
Keeping it natural
"What other qualities unite his ever-widening diverse portfolio of work is actually an answer? That comes pretty simply. And that's just the context context of the situation and what I mean by context. It's not just the physical context. It's also the cultural context. You're just trying to for me anyway as an architect understand what what the situation is and then come together with some sort of appropriate response the response is always going to be different. And I suppose there's always a bit of a changing need an atmosphere around the work which changes and I WANNA talk. Tiny about sustainability is the issue of the day but your work is always some of the best examples of it. Do this brilliant. They engaged just with the idea of nature and the built environment and bringing those two things together. Do you think that conversations always been there or is it more important now than I. You know I can say easily easily in my career. Absolutely that's been a conversation that's been part of my life. Since I was a kid I grew up in a big landscape. Big Sky big mountains big desert's and so for me. The natural landscape quite naturally comes to me as a place to understand quickly and a place to respond to quickly away from a sustainability strategy. What that means is that if in fact you do engage sort of a natural landscape in a sense if you understand natural landscapes you actually understand sustainability because you're understanding the natural forces and so if you're making decisions architectural decisions based on understanding those natural forces not only just climatic metro forces Belsen Material Natural Forces physical natural forces? We actually making reasonable notable responses and a reasonable response. A smart response is a sustainable response. Is that making sense. There was the building may be low maintenance. The building Mesa breath. The building may sort of respond correctly to a solar situation. And that's a sustainable strategy. The profession has been I think a mixed bag. Frankly Klay I think if you look different careers. You'll see different responses historically. You can go back any number of years and recognize architects KOTEX. That came from. Maybe they didn't have the word sustainability but they had basis that should be a rational response and again a rational response would be smart response. That's would be a low energy response would be a sustainable response. We learn a lot even from non architects. Our ancestors the way they had to solve problems before there it was a grid they had to sort of figure out how to sustainably us. Maybe what they had cut in the form of firewood it or gathered in the form of some sort of heat source. Certainly if you're in a temperate semi tropical climate the strategies that our ancestors there's would do buildings were also sustainable because in other words if you're in a semi tropic air you're looking for coolness so you know how to engage depending on the humidity of a situation but maybe maybe evaporative cooling as an swamp cooler or leading the natural breezes go underneath a building through a building in a cross a top of building interesting so you think design and its capacity acetates. Who I suppose do the most with the least lends itself actually to this sustainable fight? I guess materials place though where the technology is shifting most quickly and interesting that you guys can come dig in your work use a lot of woods so we're almost back to that sense of the natural being able to do things as well as the sins ethic. Well you're making a really interesting point because you're right. The Pacific northwest the Canadian West. They really are the big forest up there so that was an available material for many many years so we also recognize the difficulty with using wooden. And if you're in a environment oh maybe you could say an environment similar to like London which is a relatively typically wet humid and particularly. Yeah no kidding but historically basically you have done using wood products is that in a the sense in these sort of mild climates. y'All set up a compost heap. You've already started the sort of deconstruction. This would so from a sustainability sustainability standpoint. There's always been this. Conversation is in fact like most of London is maybe made from bricks and concrete and steel is that potentially more sustainable strategy. Because there's no maintenance you don't have to come back you don't have to replace bricks mortar concrete or maybe has a much longer life span and certainly the embodied energy initially is is higher but maintenance becomes a big part of a circling back to wood. Wood is going through sort of a technological evolution evolution or maybe a revolution where the way would is being used and being treated now is actually becoming much more sustainable. So here do you have well. It's always been maybe sustainable one but one could argue that. It's a complicated answer. I think it's becoming a simpler answer traditionally. If you you build out of wood you're basically encapsulating the carbon but if that carbon begins to deteriorate you're basically releasing this is carbon again if there's a way to sort of encapsulate that carbon which is what we're doing for a number of years now with CLT's an example we're making structure out of a lot of woods that's across nominates and cross laminated treating them. Well it's a way of making this would and taking a bunch of wood and making something structural out of it which is actually taking the tree as it's growing is naturally an air scrubber innocence so it actually unlike concrete or steel. It's not being made with petroleum products and releasing a bunch of carbon in the process of being made. It's actually dealing with it so it's actually a scrubbing device. Ice It's a divisive ask is cleaning the air. That's a good thing. Then when you got it and shape it and whatever and then you assemble it if you can keep that from not rotting or decomposing or burning. Then you've got a really interesting sustainability strategy where you're growing something takes out the problem. The some of the issues. And then you're encapsulating it and storing it absolutely and I think when I talk to people about sustainability is while you've hit tournament good point that despite the initial outlay of building things from bricks and a lot of the unfairness of the building industry at the time of London's Victorian and Georgian building. Actually a lot of the move lasted rather well and the way that people used those structures have changed over time have been divided into flats. But they've been quite good shells and I sometimes see new buildings flying up big big losses tail towers and I wonder how they're wonder how they're going to age so that's an interesting point. When Your Architectural Co Conspirator Jim Olson was here he told me a very compelling story about knowing that he wanted to be an architecture and extraordinarily young age it was a bucolic image of a child building forts plane with bow and Arrow no doubt carefully cultivated automated to entertain me? Did you always know you wanted to be an architect and that same way. I knew I didn't want to be an architect. Okay as a kid. My Dad was an architect attacked and I grew up around a community of architects. And they were actually mid century architecture actually very good. They did some terrific projects in the fifties fifties and sixties. But I actually found the culture kind of uncomfortable to be around for all reasons. You know the culture of architecture and some of the characteristics actress of that what I was comfortable around are more comfortable around was part of that community was a very strong artist community and I appreciated the artists anti elitist inventive creative fun loving Bohemian kind of character a which was the antithesis of what I saw in the architecture community so I knew I wasn't going to be an artist because I think in artists comes from a different place and even as as a child I knew that wasn't a place I was going but also did not want to be an architect in don't converge. Yeah well it. It was kind of an interesting the process for me certainly and it was a process that even surprised my dad because he knew how I felt about it. I actually went to the university to study hard. Sciences basically physics yes in some math and whatever and I thought possibly geophysics was really my direction academically but I was also very interested in mountain climbing and mountain skiing. That was almost my passion in a way. So there was an academic direction and Sort of a physical direction completely separate from the profession architecture. And I've been saying this figured out pretty quickly that I wasn't as clever as I thought. I was in that particular academic direction so I started taking our classes asses because our classes were always something I found interesting or important to my background and we all know that architecture is the intersection of rational. He was Sir I was absolutely and it was like this relentless force that was pulling me into this black hole of architecture and ultimately fell into it and of course. In Retrospect I. I couldn't be happier about what I get to do. As a professional I just pinch myself I lucked out. Fortunately against all desire I became what I didn't. I want to become as a case for face. I think. So
