A FAMILY BRAG: My son, Justin Thorp, tells about his job at the Clearspring Company, a widget maker

I've written recently about super-daughter Krista and her engagement to a pretty cool guy from North Carolina.  Many have asked about our son Justin.

Since late January he's been working for a widget-maker, Clearspring Company in McLean, Virginia, where he serves as the community manager.  It's a position that has become more common with web startup companies.

In this short video, Justin describes his new employer and what they do.  It was shot during the TechCocktail conference in Chicago.

Justin, we are proud of you.
