Genius grant laureate Ned Kahn is stumping for our new bridge, but I still think it is a pork barrel project

ned Kahn is a 2003 MacFound genius grant winner for his work at SF Exploratorium and he is so far eye-candy for the team from HNTD design, who want to build our $10 M Adobe Creek bridge over 101

Not that guy, this guy:

actual Ned Kahn, who was only at podium for about 2 min, at 9:45 Monday, March 16, 2015 in Palo Alto

and I: Ned Kahn was MacFound class of 2003 along with visual artist Karen Tze, future president of Dartmouth Kim Jim and composer Oscar Golijov.

This team is also responsible for the Mary Avenue / Homestead High bridge over 280, that I’ve never been on but looks nice when you whiz by.

and more than once, including Judy Wasserman, at 9:55 people have referenced jokingly the line “to sell us a bridge” — referring to the competition process — which I learn references the urban dictionary meme “I’ve got a bridge to sell you” which is Brooklyn Bridge, circa 1936 a con man named George Parker if I can believe what I read, who would sell tourists, his marks.

18 public speakers, cut to 2 minutes each, and 100 letters on this, at 9:55.
