Each week, Liam attempted to better understand contemporary demographic trends in Maine, analyzing correlations between the retirement of Maine's large Baby Boomer population, college-aged adults leaving for work and overarching sustainable qualities of a healthy economy in terms of age. Emigrationland ended up relating well to his Bangor 2020 work.

 

Strides Amongst the Elite

Olympics / edurance sports blog

On Sep. 9, 2010, Liam created Strides Amongst the Elite, a journalistic-based blog created to better serve the national and international Olympic community with up-to-date information concerning the upcoming 2012 London Games of the XXX Olympiad. Liam's original motives behind the project were to show the world the hidden brilliance of track and field — a sport which, worldwide, is barely glorified unless the Olympics are on television — but then he realized most of the sports inside the Olympics are forgotten about too. For the past half decade, Liam has taken every opportunity to better himself as an expert in Olympic sports. The blog has since transformed into a highly updated Twitter feed, covering breaking news.

 

Faster Than Forty

From May 2011 to Jan. 2012, Liam was an intern writer for FasterThanForty.com, a website created by Mark Gomes and Rick Miller to better provide running communities of all ages with sources of running-related news and entertainment while also serving as home to updates surrounding Gomes' Masters running career. Liam wrote the weekly "News of Note" column, which summarized the top stories from around the running world while linking to unique, external sources to provide further detail.

Misc.

Liam is always working on some kind of project — whether or not it's clearly relevant to improving his future marketability, that's for someone else to decide. Here are just a few of them currently being hosted online.
