First of all, just so that everybody who is new can catch up, we'd like to hand out our 2007 holiday presents all over again -- this article about radical transparency.
YOU get radical transparency! YOU get radical transparency! And YOU get radical transparency!
Some of you should really use it this year!
And now, brand new for 2008, we present this appreciation of the late author Michael Crichton.
The entire selection from several interviews we found to be pretty inspiring, but we especially enjoyed Michael's answer to Charlie's patented great / awful question about the precious "X-factor".
YOU get to hear Michael's answer about the X-factor! YOU get to hear Michael's answer about the X-factor! And YOU get to hear Michael's answer about the X-Factor!
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Good Kwanzaa, Jolly Decemberween, and may the Lord bless you and keep you this holiday season.
UPDATE: Oh! A stocking stuffer! The ZBA decision. (h/t Rauterkus)
