In American football, hang time is a term that refers to how long a punt is in the air after it is kicked. Generally speaking, the greater the hang time, the greater the opportunity for successful coverage by the kicking team.
We just completed 16 hours of hang time – a long time in the air by any stretch of the imagination – cruising at 36,000ft over the Pacific with a brief layover in Tokyo on our way to Hong Kong for what promises to be an amazing visit.
We have 17 scheduled meetings/dinners/ tours/events scheduled over the next 5 days. We will be meeting with architects, educators, developers, investors, planners, public housing directors, sustainable business leaders and other dignitaries who we hope will provide us insights into how development occurs within one of the most densely populated areas on the planet.
We expect that the value equation for development in Hong Kong will be significantly different than it is in the US. We are curious to see if the lessons that we bring back are directly transferrable to activities in the states, or merely interesting observations of how they do things “over there”.
We are looking forward to sharing our experiences with you through this blog. After 16 hours in the air, we should have had adequate hang time to be able to provide excellent coverage to our colleagues back home. Stay tuned…….
