Some lucky authors get their books turned into movies.  Others get television series.  Or maybe amusement rides. Me?  My book is being turned into an entire building.  That’s right, 304 pages of text transformed into 103,000 gleaming square feet of awesomeness. Yeah, I think it's pretty cool.

My new column in Forbes...
Culver City, once the heart of California’s movie industry, was dying just a decade ago.  The downtown was decaying.  It had become a sleepy commuter town.  Today, however, people have proclaimed it an urban renaissance.  Parts of the city that were once “forlorn and forgotten” are now crawling with high-tech [...]
