That’s right, Iceman: I am dangerous 

Photo by http://flickr.com/photos/asianz/Somehow, I think we are dangerous.
   Jim Donovan, Mark Di Somma and I caught up for the latest Vista Group luncheon today. (Natalie Ferguson had a meeting elsewhere.) We discussed type and chorizo sausage again, but my highlight was early on when Jim recounted his blog post on the job summit. There was the folly of throwing a coin three times, getting heads each time, and saying that a trend was emerging—which tied in to a discussion about the recession; the absence of project-management software that suited all our needs; and the curious world of blog syndication.
   As we ate (Vista was very busy today), a gentleman at the next table approached us and said something along the lines of, ‘I hope you don’t me saying, but the SIS would be very interested to see the three of you collaborating.’
   There are a few possibilities behind this statement.
   First, mistaken identity.
   Secondly, our reputations must reach to a far greater extent than we ever thought, and that the government should be worried about us. Or one of us is more important than we are letting on.
   Thirdly, we were filmed for one of Allen Funt’s shows.
   Fourthly, there must be something automatically suspicious about an Englishman, an Italian and a Chinaman sitting together. (I feel a joke coming on.)

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
