As a followup to the May 2011 version of Amazing Stories of Openness, I got an email a few weeks back from Wendy Farmer with a nice post script. Her story was about a blog she had created with her kids to write about dinosaurs and how they connected with a professional paleontologist (click through for the video):
From Wendy’s email, she recently reconnected with Dr Will who is at a new college–
I wanted to thank you for asking the question about Amazing Stories. Sharing it with you got me thinking and so I started Googling around and found a Dr. Will Straight at Northern Virginia Community College and sent him an email to see if it was him. We are now reconnected. He still remembers us and will even point his students to our old blog sometimes. He’s teaching paleontology and geology. The boys are I are starting up a new blog as we can’t get access to the old one anymore. Just registered the domain and we should be up and running again as paleokids.ca in the next week or so. Wouldn’t have happened without our conversation.
In a word, awesome.
