I get asked this question a surprising number of times, so I'm going to try answering it here in hopes of killing multiple future birds with one stone. The question comes in the "hey, can I pick your brain for thirty minutes" form, and winds up in an email ...

Airplane Decibel Notes

Arrival & Linguistic Relativity
The movie "Arrival" explores a concept I've loved since my first trip to Europe as a young man; Linguistic Relativity. Immediately the new world I dropped into felt different in ways I couldn't explain. Sure things were "different." Architecture, the "age" ...

Thankful For... Life.
Several months ago April and I took part in a rescue effort that wound up saving a young woman's life. It was one of the most remarkable experiences either one of us has ever had. It showed us how fragile life is. It showed us how there is "something else" ...

Are You Really a Leader?
The following transcription from Dee Hock's  Birth of the Chaordic Age  says it all. Whenever I'm asked about leadership, I always fumble around with some incongruent response that only makes sense to me. What I really need to do is memorize this and just r...

Incredible! Request second-floor seats at the main Ginza restaurant for the most authentic experience (fewest Westerners).

"always amazing food, though they're starting to show their age. wait staff doesn't feel like they're as in to it or genuine anymore. they took our picture after dinner and handed us printed copies; very cheeky feeling. decore is just too stodgy anymore."
