It was a radical change in my professional life.  Open conversation with peers without needing to spend a day or two and much money to meet with fewer surveyors at some convention.

@holy-cow 

That's one of the concepts Mark had in mind when RPLS.com was born.  Mark depended on and enjoyed advice from other surveyors. But he also had the habit of asking someone's opinion and then arguing the point. 

A fine mind and a critical thinker.  He was gone way too soon.

then arguing the point. 

Have you ever met a surveyor that didn't like to argue?
