cards on table

cool beans – TheOoze’s Soularize gets a write up; I’m out here in Cali for the long weekend (MDR to be exact), it is overcast at the moment, sure hope it clears up, tho’ I’m spending most of the time indoors this weekend for a conference.. got up 5am this morning to catch the cross-country plane ride (jetBlue, which is branding itself jetBoo for the day) and it arrived a bit late due to strong headwinds.. dined at lunch with a networking deal, and he’s a world traveller, loggin’ in 6-digits in air miles a year, and his tip to me was to stay awake during the afternoon and through the evening’s program, and then I’ll get adjusted better quicker. Okay, I’m game to give it a shot. I’m travelling lighter on this trip, so no laptop with me; using this PC terminal in the business center at the hotel to blog and check email. :)

recent thought crossing my radar: tho’ I’d prefer to play with all cards on the table, life experience is saying that I can’t do that when I come to the table with anyone and everyone. I think that stinks.

raw transparency

this blogger is insanely real transparent, sharing about the most recent event in his wife’s life – a miscarriage – and he’s a pastor at that.. how do you think people or congregation will respond to this kind of vulnerability (i use the terms transparency and vulnerability interchangeably, tho’ some people split hair over them)? My experiences in the ethnic Asian context is they don’t. Sad.

I’d side with the media on this one: The Leak That Sank the Suspects – to have had more pertinent information out there about the sniper, particularly during the manhunt, would have and did help bring to a close this ugly chapter.. what is it with authority and information hording anyways? the power of the media is if an authority is looking for something or wants something, ask for it, and the people will respond. Good thing the motorist at the rest stop did.
