Interview: Thomas Knox

Written By: Franny Crooks on

Commuting through the subways of New York City can be very interesting. It can either be frustrating, tiresome, relaxing or entertaining. Thomas Knox is bringing something unique to your subway commute with his company; Date While You Wait. He is bringing back actual human connection with a couple of folding table and chairs, some nostalgic board games and good ol' conversation. Thomas takes his seating arrangement for two to subway stations around the world, whips out one of several board games to play and waits for a fellow commuter to join him. It doesn't take long to fill the seat once Connect Four is on the scene. 
For over two years, Thomas has made the human connection of the world stronger with his gesture of some friendly competition while waiting for the next train to stop in the station. Even if it's just for a moment, Thomas is changing the way people interact with one another, one seat at a time. 
Thomas has a very interesting convo with Franny of Let Me Be Great Inc. about his passion project and how he has turned it into a business.
