  1. Classic exposition, I have also mentioned it in my blog article. But it is a pity that almost no friend discussed it with me. I am very happy to see your article.

    Nice spot, clever. I would argue for a discount on a moderate rolling stop, broad daylight, with no cars around.

    Dan, I need to put together a sign for meetings / workshops that I hold that (nicely) remind participants “no electronic grazing” – Blackberries, iPhones, laptops off, though breaks will be provided. Would love if your readers could provide suggestions for how to do so (or how they’ve seen it done) in ways that are emotionally intelligent instead of scolding!

    @ Sharon:
    Some ideas:
    Distraction Free Zone
    “Set Phasers To Stun, Phones to Silent”
    Participants Welcome, Distractions are Not
    Prizes Given for Stupid Ringtones – Sign Up Here

    Conference Rooms with posters for meeting rules= table stakes for everyone in the room

    Humor should rule the day…
