    Shawn – love this blog!…wish such a tool existed when i was deep in the throes of plastics distribution from the 60’s through to the end of the last century.

    Would you allow me to use some of your enthusiasm for our industry as an Industry Interview in an upcoming issue?

    Thanks for posting the link to our publication.

    Aloha Shawn, well done!

    I learned about your blog from Ted Demopoulus, and for me, what you are doing here is a perfect example of ho‘ohana. Ho‘ohana is a Hawaiian value which means to create worthwhile work with full intention, and when you also
    write about it, you magnify the resulting good in so many ways. Your enthusiasm and focus really shines through in every posting you’ve done so far, and you are creating a very rich resource for your industry in the process.

    Continue to Ho‘ohana, and you can be sure that I will continue to read each new posting!

    Hi Shawn,

    Thanks for citing us in your article about Creep and ASTM D2990! Great blog – keep up the good work, and let us know if we can provide any additional information and technical content for you!

    Also, we’re getting ready to make ASTM Test Standards available in our online store – hopefully we’ll have those for plastics folks soon!
