Local architecture and engineering firm Gresham Smith and Partners has been selected by Southwest Airlines and Los Angeles International Airport officials to study renovation options for LAX's Terminal 1, which was expanded to handle the 1984 Olympics. Gresham, which has played a big part in the overhaul of Nashville International Airport during the past decade, is currently working on about 20 airport projects around the country.
Larry Bodine, a popular legal business development expert, reports on his blog the unique story of Christopher Levinson, law firm administrator for the Masry Vititoe firm in Westlake Village near Los Angeles. If that name sounds familiar, it's because the firm employed Erin Brockovich, the law clerk made famous by the memorable face of Julia Roberts.
Now, Levinson is attracting the attention. He has 52,477 followers on Twitter and 1,100 LinkedIn contacts and the numbers are growing every day. How did he get so many followers?
Levinson said he likes to do good and enjoys tweeting about topics that help people. And, perhaps most impressively, he follows back every person who follows him. He started his Twitter account about two years ago but said he has not gotten his arms around the social media thing. Levinson said he tweets when he has time, which is usually early morning and late in the evening. To date, he has sent more than 1,300 tweets.
Levinson's social media accounts are not connected to the law firm, although Levinson tweets about legal issues that would interest potential clients, Bodine writes. Much of Levinson’s material comes from his membership in several litigation and product recall listservs.
