Meeting Bill Thompson

Tuesday, November 15, 2005
I met Bill Thompson in Harlingen, Texas. He's a professor at University of Texas Pan American. Do we look related?

He teaches marketing and statistics at UTPA and was at the Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival conducting an economic impact survey on ecotourism. We field trip leaders passed out the surveys on every trip. It'll be interesting to see what the results are.

Professor Thompson told me that, being in South Texas, he's often asked by bird watchers if he's related to me! It's nice to know that at least one Bill Thompson on this planet understands statistics, because it's Greek to me!

Since I have the same name, I had to make a comment. I run into other Bill Thompson's all the time. You can see a blog I contribute to at www.juggernuts.com
