Thanks to the ten people who joined me for the first world-wide Linchpin meet-up day. We had a simple, enjoyable time relaxing over pizza and beverages. I meant to take photos and forgot.
Now that I’ve got a taste for how easy it is to put a meet-up together, I may just have to make local meet-ups a quarterly affair. I know some people out there prefer a few minutes of actual conversation intermixed with quality electronic communications.
In this grab bag post I’ll send out my best wishes for my good friends attending the Edward Tufte one day course in Seattle this Tuesday or Wednesday. I know you’ll have a blast and can’t wait until Thursday when I can hear all about how much you liked the class. Remember to watch not only the content of the course, but how Tufte delivers the content. He’s giving you a lesson in teaching that he’s thrown for free.
Never to leave a post without one great link, enjoy this article on leadership from the American Scholar. I’m finding myself recently drawn to the speeches given to the men and women in our service academies. Perhaps its the implied purpose of the cadet’s life that makes the speaker want to say something worth remembering. Whatever it is, we’re all benefiting.
Wishing you a fabulous week of driving change – April
