I also welcome feedback on my writing. I read every email.

You can also follow me on Instagram at @billmeidotnet but I don’t post very often. If you want to keep in touch, the best way to do so is via my email list.

Hang out with me IRL

I write because I enjoy learning new perspectives from you, meeting new people, and hanging out in person (or virtually)!

This is my standing invitation: if you have something interesting you’d like to share with me, I want to talk to you.

I try to be transparent in my writing, so hopefully you’ll be able to get a sense of my personality just from reading this blog. You can learn more about my operating principles at

Here are a few essays you can start with if you are new to my writing:

The Three Quilt Theory of Relationships

In friendships form via shared context, not shared activities, I introduce the idea that it’s a sense of shared responsibility that makes for strong friendships, not doing activities based on superficial traits.

The three quilt theory is that a relationship becomes strong when you share at least three overlapping contexts in your friendship quilt.

Therefore, if you’d like to hang out IRL I would prefer we find some way for you to help my friends, such as attending a gathering like Learning Night.

Otherwise if you’d like to hang out 1:1 feel free to email me at ten.iemllib@llib and introduce yourself, as well as a link to your online media (so I know you are a real person).

I look forward to meeting you!
