The holidays are always a time for reflection; I start this entry by wishing you all the very happiest of holidays and hoping that you enjoy time away with your family and friends. In the spirit of reflection, I also embark on a new direction for my commentary here, moving beyond exclusively original thinking to embrace the best and most interesting insights and articles I find on the web. Going forward into 2014 and beyond, I will provide a balanced package of my original thinking, that of others I find consistent with my own, and interesting diversions you may appreciate to take you away from your day-to-day grind. I hope you enjoy this new format, and encourage you to share your reactions and hopes.
I will start with a representative cross-section of the types of links you will see here more regularly going forward.
In the spirit of resolutions:
