By day 21 of this month of May you’re probably already tired of all that work. And as they say, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. And Jane as well, obviously. That’s why you must go and chill with startup people and all other sorts of workaholics. No speakers, no workshops. Just show up, ask for a drink, relax and meet awesome people. Or ignore them. Your call.

  6. My God, Field. It's 12:40am on Friday and you haven't posted anything new. Not only that, you haven't released the comments from Thanksgiving day. I had planned to do a lot of posting this Thursday and Friday. Last Thanksgiving you posted Thrs, Fri, Sat and Sun. If I remember right, there were a lot of hits during that time. I am going to notify Anon, Inc about this shit. You have deprived me of some serious posting.

I will say that I came away from the program with an appreciation for the richness of the data, and for the myriad uses. What always worries me with DiSC or MBTI (or birds) is that because of the time commitment, it gets reduced to a “parlor game” instead of a real opportunity to take various aspects of the business and look at them through the lens of type.Um, you love statistics?
