Last week I had the great privilege to speak at the TEDxVCU event on the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University.  I talked about the origins of the FIW project and then had the opportunity to have a conversation with a member of the TEDxVCU audience.  AJ is a first generation college student who talked to me about the importance of the, almost daily, conversations that he has with his mom.    He chose to come to VCU so that he could study and be close to family.  At the end of our conversation he decided to leave a gift card that he received from his stepfather in the Perfect Mason Jar.  I had also come prepared to leave an object in the Perfect Mason and you’ll have to watch the our conversation on the TED stage to find out what is was.  (Video Link to Come)
