Dulles, Virginia; Fairfax, Virginia; Washington, DC; Dallas, Texas; Toronto, Ontario.

Tarmac baggage pickup from gateside checkin at Washington Dulles airport. How quaint. Followed by long walk through pier, escalator up and down, train to terminal, walk to last baggage carousel and then outside to rental car pickup. IAD makes JFK and O’Hare seem intimate (Virginia, Wednesday)

Urban rail in downtown Dallas. It occurred to me that I have been to the area frequently, but never really down in the city core, and always in a car. Times change, and energy costs will continue to rise, so this is part of the future (Friday, Texas) 20100827 0845

      Fit the people around an organization; or an organization around the people? Working backwards, say @MitroffCrisis + #HaroldLinstone, from current concrete choices to uncertain futures, surfaces strategic assumptions in a collective decision, better than starting with an abstract scorecard to rank candidates.
