Judging by those quotes, Benjamin Franklin would have loved twitter! πŸ˜‚

Ben Franklin is such an interesting case study, for several reasons. In addition to being a PDF hustler, the "Junto" he founded (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Junto_(club) is an early model for curing intellectual loneliness and perhaps, writing from conversation. Then there's the way he taught himself to improve his writing (https://observer.com/2016/12/the-benjamin-franklin-method-how-to-actually-be-a-better-writer/). Sorry for the long links, but hope they prove interesting!

I got halfway through this article before I checked who the author is and was surprised to see your name on it, and really glad, because it ventures outside of your usual engineering focus, and it has always felt to me that there is so much more to your skills, insight, and competency that I look forward to seeing more of. And it didn't know this about Benjamin Franklin. That he funded all that he contributed with one great writing project is totally inspiring.

This couldn't have been written at a better time for me. I was close to giving up on finishing my workbook/guide. I SHALL BECOME A PDF HUSTLER
