Evening before the NASA Flagship study session.  Aim to better understand the factors that impact and change execution of grand programs.  Tonight will be gathering for dinner at Station 4.

Going to be a DC summer scorcher today.  Not even noon and I'm working up a sweat, and the tomato plants are wilting.

Interesting Economist article on "unsourcing" - relying on volunteers for technical solutions.
FOR the past decade, technical support has been in the vanguard of globalisation.
