Visionary Cat Herding Princes of Execution

That last post about the quote I saw on Twitter generated quite a discussion about the difference in rolls between the Visionaries and the Princes(ses) of Execution.

Momentary Flashes of Twitter Brilliance

Twitter is all the rage these days. Several big blogging names are fully on board tweeting away. And a few others have not embraced the idea.

An Open Letter To the “New” AT&T

And the Winner is QUALITY!

The results are in. We started last week by asking the question Quantity vs Quality – Which is Better? We had a lively discussion about it.

How to Stay on Course During Life’s Storms
