I'm looking for an expert witness in the area of architecture copyright in the US. The Northeast would be ideal. It seems like there are a million online, so any additional recommendations would be much appreciated.

Inspired by this question
: I'm 26, let's say I wanted to become a world renown expert in a serious field of study in the next 10 years (or less). Is there a discipline I could start now, dedicate several years and concentrated study and become good enough to be the go-to expert quoted on the news? [more inside]

About every 3 months, I receive an email asking me to join this company's [The Round Table Group (http://www.roundtablegroup.com/)] network of experts as a consultant. Is it worth my time? Is it a rotten deal? Are they blowing smoke? [more inside]

I am trying to find/identify a story about a customer with some problem (plumbing maybe?) and calls in an expert to fix it. The expert fixes the problem in some trivial way (turning a valve?) The customer then refuses to pay the expert's fee for such a simple fix. the punchline comes when the expert replies that his fee isn't for turning the valve, it's for knowing *which* valve to turn.

I run a computer service. I have an issue that is a bit outside the bounds. I have a client who has been using an Excel spreadsheet to track his portfolio. It is pre-formatted for him to enter data and the formulas are all there.
Just recently, it started calculating some things incorrectly.
The person who originally set it up just passed away earlier this year.
We need an Excel expert that can look at the file and don't know where to begin to find one. Checked the local community college but no dice. All ideas or pointers are appreciated.

A couple of months ago I read an article that stated that world class athletes or musicians were not that much more talented than other people: they just worked harder. Does anybody know which article I mean? I am also interested to learn other opinions about this. How good can you become if you are very motivated and willing to invest the time? My personal interest is in long distance running, but I am also interested in general stories/opinions/articles.
