Amos Blanton worked for the LEGO Foundation when we met. He moved his family from the U.S. to Denmark to help entrench the newly minted LEGO Idea into the company's bedrock. Previously he worked alongside Mitch Resnick at MIT's Media Lab, leveraging his degree in counseling psychology to develop play-enhancing software through the Trojan horse of education. His rich insight into political policy and educational theory, his humor, and his generosity have connected me with numerous fascinating individuals around the world.
