HoCo Blogger Flashback

Last Saturday night, my wife and I saw comedian John Oliver at the National Theatre in Washington DC.  Just after we took our seats, Evan Coren stopped by to say hello.

The above picture was taken when Evan was the CA Board member from Kings Contrivance.  In addition to being on the CA Board, Evan had the Howard County Blog.  The blog has been inactive since 2009, and for good reason.  Evan told me that he now lives in Downtown/Penn Quarter Washington DC.  I think the blog post from Evan that I will always remember is the one that shows up if you follow the link to his blog.  Evan had taken the time to conceive a comprehensive mass transit design for Howard County, complete with links to existing DC Metro lines and Baltimore.  Now that he lives in DC, Evan told me that he had sold his car and uses the Metro for almost all of his transportation needs (hooray).

Evan, it was great seeing you, I hope I will have the chance to stop by and chat the next time I am in DC.
