I was like: This sounds way too familar to me. And yes as a Miami resident I there's a place called Fisher island, that Carl Fisher used to own: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fisher_Island,_Florida


Context: Ashton Kutcher mentioned him at his talk at Startup School.


Yep. It took me a few moments to find the right Carl Fisher, so I figured I'd save everybody else the trouble.


Good idea. And the wikipedia page is a good read, in addition to Kutcher's good story-telling.


great talk. for those who missed it:

I learned a whole lot about Carl Fisher researching my Modern JavaScript presentation for JSConf (http://blip.tv/jsconf/jsconf2011-rebecca-murphey-5478159 & http://www.slideshare.net/rmurphey/modern-javascript). He and his fellow Good Roads enthusiasts have a lot to teach us for sure.
