I have a friend named Andrew, a tech guy inspired by me as he grew up alongside my boy, recently tell me that:

I can code a handshake between two systems that otherwise would never talk to each other. Any two systems can do such with a rest api, irregardless of intellectual property's or even how its coded. I could make the department of defense talk to your blog.

He may drop by here one day and it would be great to be inspired by him!
